sangria senorial

OK, Sangria Senorial. I see what you're trying to do here. You want a non-alcoholic beverage that tastes like sangria that you can enjoy on any occasion. I'm sorry to say, you have failed miserably.

When I popped open this bottle of Mexican bottled non-alcoholic sangria and smelled it for the first time, I knew I was in trouble. Wafting out of the bottle was a stench of rotting fruit. And the first (and only sip) was not much better. It tasted like sangria, yes. But not any sangria I would ever want to drink.

This proves that sangria will forever be best consumed at your favorite mexican restaurant or brunch hangout. And it will be made hopefully that day, and with fresh fruit and fresh wine.  It will be boozy, sweet, and delicious.

The bottle cap is mostly functional in its design.  Name of the beverage? Check. Made in Mexico? Check. Weird fruit-leaf thing? Check. And they advertise that this beverage is non-alcoholic. Why would you do that?!

I implore you, faithful readers, do not -- do NOT -- drink Sangria Senorial if you ever find it in your local deli. Hopefully, I have saved you from the horrible fate that awaits you beneath that bottle cap.


  1. Why on earth would any human being drink non alcoholic sangria?!

  2. Seriously, what's next? Non alcoholic beer?

  3. there is non alcoholic beer. this stuff isnt that bad all.

  4. There are ppl. who can't consume acoholic beverages. I have had many of these drinks and never had one as the one you described. Are you sure it was kept in a cool place, and not a regular shelf?
