FRIDA SANGRIA BY MUY BUENO COOKING
The sangria – meaning “bloodletting,” en Español – might just be the perfect pitcher drink to celebrate the spooky season.
With its rich slasher-flick color and bittersweet ending, Muy Bueno Cooking’s Frida Sangria is so delish, it’s sure to give you goosebumps.
Enjoy with a night of spooky movies (we’re making some dang good ones on our Instagram page) or curl up with a nice thriller and sip the night away.
For those who don’t “do scary” (don’t worry, we won’t tell), this Frida Kahlo-inspired sangria pairs beautifully with a crisp autumn brunch. May we recommend serving with some apple compote French Toast?
Like all Mexican sangrias, the key to the Frida Sangria is its tequila. Make sure you have plenty of Reposado on hand to bring this classic cocktail to life. And if you’re out – never fear – we can deliver our award-winning rested tequila to your door through Drizly or Caskers.
