Listen, friends. It's the weekend — and it's summer. Let's just cut to the chase, shall we?
Sound the alarm because Target recently launched a new permanent addition to their $5 wine line...
🚨IT'S SANGRIA. 🚨
The sangria officially hit shelves a few weeks ago — but it's been tough to find at times, because apparently, the stuff is pretty popular.
But because I believe in doing the hard work* for you, I eventually tracked down a bottle to taste. I wanted to see if it was worthy of its sold out status — or if it was all hype.
Couple things right off the bat: The wine is: 1) 11% ABV, 2) A red blend of several wines including Zinfandel, Syrah, and Merlot, and 3) Best over ice.
First impressions? It's pretty sweet. Definitely drinkable, but like the bottle says, better over ice — which helps mellow out the sweetness.
For a more complete review, I also enlisted a dude's* opinion. He said it tasted like "drunk Hawaiian Punch." 😎
And like I said, people seem to like it!
Or at least, appreciate its ~effect~.
We both agreed that if you toned down the sweetness by mixing in something tart — like a grapefruit seltzer, or crushed berries, or lots of fresh lime — it would def make for a solid outdoor summer drink.
You could then toss in your fave liquor if you want to get the alcohol level back up. (A clean tequila would be good!)
