We love our sangria in Los Angeles. If you have your own recipe, Sandeman Port wine is giving everyone the chance to show it off and compete for a trip for two to the great Tales of the Cocktail extravaganza this July in New Orleans.
They are looking for great summer sangrais, and the only requirement is you use Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto (roughly $15-$20, and it should be available at Pavilions, Whole Foods, BevMo! or specialty liquor retialers).
Original sangria recipes and images will be shared through the Sandeman Summer Sangria Challenge tab on Facebook (Facebook.com/SandemanPorto), and the judging panel will select the winning recipe based on taste, creativity/originality and how well the ingredients represent the summer season. Pitcher recipes must include a bottle of Sandeman Founders Reserve Porto, but everything else is left to the imagination and inspiration of the sangria master.
To enter the Sandeman Summer Sangria Challenge, participants will need to visit www.facebook.com/SandemanPorto to submit their original recipe and a photograph of the prepared cocktail between May 1, 2012 and June 1, 2012 (11:59:59 p.m. EST).
