(PRESS RELEASE)_On National Sangría Day, December 20, dust off your high school Spanish and wax poetic with your thirsty squad at City Oyster, City Cellar and Barrio.
Not feeling particularly loquacious? No worries, bring your boozy tastebuds to Delray Beach, where City Oyster will be pouring red, white, and rosé sangría ($13) on tap. Stay for Happy Hour from 4-7 p.m. and double down with 2-for-1 cocktails and $1 oysters.
At City Cellar in The Square (formerly Rosemary Square), order the peach sangría ($12.50), a glamorous señorita loaded with albarino, peach liqueur, vodka, local citrus, and housemade peach syrup. Stick around for Happy Hour and pony up to the inside bar for half-priced drinks, appetizers, and gourmet pizza from 4-7 p.m.
Take the fiesta next door, and enjoy a spectacular sunset at City Cellar's buzzy bar, Barrio. Create an instant tradition with executive chef Rolando Anoceto's Latin tapas and $9 saludable sangrías – blanco, rojo, rosado, sparkling – during happy hour from 4-7 p.m.
