Drink of the Week: Red Plum Sangria

Red Plum Sangria

What is it? Exact ingredients are unclear, but by taste it is red wine, brandy, sugar, ice and fresh cubes of red plums.

Where is it? Pacific Kitchen, in Inman Park. (This is from the same trip as the Blood Orange Mojito.)

How was it? Light, summery and not too sweet. The ice clinked, the glass was cooly sweating, the sunset fell through it into red shapes on the table. The plums were pick-out-and-eat tasty. Just how much of its goodness came from the modest heat and lovely ambient sunset is unclear. It’s terrific color withstood the flood of melting ice, but the flavor did not, so drink it fast.

How much? About $7.

    It looks and sounds lovely, and it’s a rare afternoon where I turn down a not-too-sweet drink with fruit chunks floating among clinking ice cubes. And, just since you point out the necessity, I’ll drink it fast when I go. Thanks, Will!

    Tough job you’ve got reviewing these drinks. I am sorry to say that I wish you to continue this endeavor..
