Senate Passes Bill to Throw Out Sangria Ban
The Virginia Senate passed a bill yesterday to allow restaurants to sell sangria that includes brandy, triple sec or a similar spirit, a mixture that is banned by state law.
Sangria, which is served at many Spanish restaurants, is generally made with wine and fruit but often includes a small amount of spirits. The Senate bill would change a law that prohibits the mixing of wine and spirits. A similar bill is advancing through the House of Delegates.
