Best Toronto Restaurants for Sangria in Toronto

Sangria, a popular drink in Spain and Portugal, has made its way onto many Toronto drinks menus this season yet again. Thanks to its ingredients of wine, fresh fruit, a sweetening agent, and a little brandy, it appeals both to wine lovers and those looking for a refreshing, fruity drink. The key is to use good wine and keep the sweetness in check.

Barsa Taberna

1
26 Market St, Toronto, ON M5E 1M6

By far, the prettiest in the city, thanks to the white ceramic painted pitcher. And they’ve got three to choose from: Sangria Blanco ($36/pitcher) Gerardo Chardonnay, Calvados, green apples, grapes, basil and mascerated cantaloupes

Carmen Cocina Espanola

2
922 Queen St W, Toronto, ON M6J 1G6

Choose from a 12 oz. (!) glass of red or white sangría ($14), but indeed choose one, as they are as potent and delicious as Ryan Gosling. Not filled with fruit, but instead infused with alcohol and topped off with a dried orange, the bang for your buck here is immense.

Sangria Lounge

3
145 Roncesvalles Ave, Toronto, ON M6R 2L2

Just the fact that this place has sangria in the title, makes it qualify. It’s not artisanal in the least, but when you want a refreshing sangria that doesn’t cost a fortune ($5.50/gls, $15.75/pitcher), this is the place to go.

e11even

4
15 York St, Toronto, ON M5J 0A3

e11even’s patio is a great place to people watch and even better if you’re catching a show at the Air Canada Centre. Better still? Their signature sangria ($14), made with white wine and fresh fruit, is enough for two. Which means you’ve got enough left over for another round...

Ed's Real Scoop

5
2224 Queen St E, Toronto, ON M4E 1E9

For those not wanting to indulge in the drink version, Ed’s sangria sorbet hits the spot. He uses real wine, so it still counts.
