The harsh mid-day sun scorches across your back as you stumble into a weathered tavern on the outskirts of the Talenta Plains. Weakly you slide into a corner booth and plopping a few coins on the table motion for the barkeep. He saunters over barely taking notice of your condition, sweeps the coins into a pocket and deposits two large jugs on the table, along with a few mugs. Gazing into the first you notice a deep crimson liquid with chunks of exotic of fruit floating about. The second is a more mellow golden draught and as you inhale the scent of citrus tickles your nose.
Sangria is an alcoholic punch originating in Spain. It is characterized by one or more kinds of alcohol (typically wine is the base) mixed with various fruits and served chilled. It is often associated with the summer months as a cool refresher to the harsh heat, but is a festive drink that can be served for all occasions. While many recipes utilize red wine as the primary ingredient, below are recipes for both a classic red and a white wine sangria. They both take an Italian spin by using Prosecco, which is an Italian sparkling wine. Champagne or other sparkling wines could be substituted.

If no food is involved then simply take your pick, or roll a d20 and let fate decide.Read More
