Tapa Toro’s Rosada Sangria

///Tapa Toro’s Rosada Sangria

This recipe comes from the beverage menu at Tapa Toro.

Located just under the Orlando Eye, Tapa Toro is a Spanish tapas restaurant known for its larger-than-life paellas, lively flamenco dancing and sangria! Rosada Sangria is a fruitier, more effervescent version of classic red wine sangria. A sweet purée made from fresh Florida strawberries give the drink its pretty pink color. Rosada Sangria is on the menu year-round, but it is especially popular during the summer months when guests are looking for something bubbly and refreshing to beat the Florida heat.


3 oz Sparkling Spanish Cava

1.5 oz Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka

4 – 5 Large Florida strawberries

Splash of ginger ale
