CRITICS, UPSTATE | Orillas Tapas Bar & Restaurant
413 N. Market St., Wilmington, 427-9700
Tapas at Orillas come under the control of chef Julio Lazzarini, but the wonderful sangria is all mom. Ivelisse Lazzarini’s recipe calls for strong wine—think Cabernet or Tempranillo—and sugar-free fruit juice. Be generous with the fruit, she says. Red fruits (plums, apples, red grapes) go into red sangria. White fruits (pears, honeydew, white grapes) go into white sangria. Orillas has barrels of both, plus sparkling sangria de cava and St-Germain sangria.
CRITICS, DOWNSTATE | Cactus Café
37 N. Dupont Hwy., Selbyville, 436-2750
Sangria at Cactus Café is done right—that is, the traditional way. The true test is combining the right ingredients, such as Burgundy, sweet vermouth, triple sec and freshly cut fruit in correct proportions. Grab a 16-ounce glass for just $3.95 anytime. Pair with Cactus Café’s excellent paella.
