Drink of the Week: Secret-Recipe Sangria

This week’s crowned cocktail serves as a fruity, pick-me-up from the winter doldrums. An irresisible take on red wine sangria, this week’s drink of the week is the original creation of bartender Tim and is titled “5 West Sangria”. Though Tim prefers to keep his recipe top-secret, he did share with us the basic blend of fruits that make this drink a winner. A blend of peach, apple, orange, and lemon derivatives, a red wine base, and a splash of brandy marry muddled strawberries, oranges, and cherries to make this 5 West signature. This sangria is served by the glass and is one of the bar’s regular specials. Snag a jar of your own for just $6. Your taste buds will thank you. As Tim so aptly put it, “It’ll change your life.”
