Aspen Times Weekly Libation: Sangria Flight

by Jeanne McGovern


Limelight Sangria Flight

$12 during happy hour (3-7 p.m.)

The Aspen weather of late has been brutal. But I refuse to let that stop me from believing summer will get here and the sun will shine on patios around town. In the meantime, I’m going to enjoy a taste of the season ahead at the Limelight. The hotel lounge’s new Sangria Flight screams summer — all three Sangrias are light and refreshing, with just enough kick to make you feel like it’s those lazy days of vacation we all dream of. My personal favorite is the Rosé Sangria, housemade with Rosé, raspberry, strawberry, peach, fresh lemon and orange juice, and No. 1 tequila. But I wouldn’t turn down a crisp glass of White Sangria (white wine, kiwi, strawberry, lime, agave, Bacardi rum) or Red Sangria (red wine, green apple, orange, lemon, fresh lime and orange juice, brandy, orange liqueur, Belvedere vodka). Now if only the sun would shine so I can truly savor the sipping.
