I have mentioned before that Los Angeles Argentine restaurant South Point has a tendency to store their red wines in the attic rather than the cellar - at least that’s the impression I get from the rather warm serving temperature . Their whites, happily, do not suffer the same fate. Just to be safe, on my most recent visit there, I took advantage of the hot summer weather and ordered a white sangria .
Our waitress explained that she would be back after she made it. It didn’t take long before she brought a beverage that looked like a pink lemonade to the table. The tint comes thanks to a dash of grenadine.
The white sangria features the Trapiche Torrontes and lemonade, along with small chunks of orange, lemon and strawberry. She also added a little sugar, which I felt was unnecessary and I will ask her to skip next time.
It’s a refreshing drink with tartness from the lemon, brightness from orange and sweetness from the strawberry. I left the sugar at the bottom of the glass. Oh, and there’s plenty of ice, so it’s nice and cold, no matter where the wine is stored.
