Attending the annual Sangria Smackdown event at the Boston Seaport World Trade Center was a blast! Set up on the rooftop outside, it was a beautiful night! Various restaurants designed booths to showcase their best Sangria. Guests voted at the end of the night their favorite Sangria after sampling a numerous selection. Once tallied up, a Sangria Smackdown Champion would be named!
Some of the restaurants featured were Salvatores, Strega, Coppersmith, Legal Test Kitchen and The Barking Crab just to name a few! The photo above shows the delicious Sangria from Strega Waterfront with a blood orange flavor and an awesome bright neon pink color with a true sparkle!
The Sakura Sangria from Empire took on a different twist with basil, ginger and lychee. Some flavors I wasn’t familiar with, but hey, I was at the Sangria Smackdown! There was not one I was not going to give a shot!
Cant ever go wrong with watermelon, right?? Well, Outlook Kitchen and Bar did just that! Such an awesome Sangria Blend with Watermelon Flavor all over!
The Barking Crab featured a Sangria with a Melon Flavor! It was so refreshing! After winning the competition last year, they were up for some high expectations to come back at it and get it again! My friends and I had an absolute perfect Thirsty Thursday summer night here at the annual smackdown and we can’t wait to attend it again in the following years to come! A great way to learn about new and upcoming restaurants in the city or learn about a new Sangria cocktail you may not have tried yet at one of your favorite spots! Bring on Summer!!
