The Clos19 Clerico, a white sangria
Take a splash of Spanish, a dash of French ‘je ne sais quoi’ and a large sprinkle of South American charm. Welcome to Buenos Aires.
Argentina's capital is a multicultural melting pot with a particular fancy for all things French. Let’s don our mixology tools and channel this dynamic cocktail of cultures with a twist on the ‘clerico’ – the Argentinian sangría blanco – to create a white, South American sangria with added French flourish.
Take a crisp white wine (we love the uber-aromatic Terrazas de los Andes Torrontés) and add a heady mix of tropical and citrus fruit with a kick of cognac – Hennessy cognac, of course. Transport yourself to a summer night in San Telmo, with a sip of your own Clos19 Clerico. Here’s how:
