Last night I declared it the unofficial start to sangria season! The reason for this momentous occasion was my trip to one of Portland’s newest restaurant’s OX, Argentine inspired Portland food, on NE MLK Blvd. I realized I had not ordered sangria in a very long time and with it being this far into June I decided it was high time I get the sangria diaries back into full swing.
We didn’t do the traditional steak dinner but we did get some good small bites- a kale salad, empanadas, grilled bread with ricotta and mushrooms, artichoke, and of course drinks. Now onto those drinks…
The sangria balnco sounded interesting so I went for it: white wine, gin, pineapple & mint. The mint and gin were the most loud of the flavors and I was disappointed to find zero signs of actual fruit anywhere in the drink, but that didn’t stop me.
