Se­nate Passes Bill to Throw Out San­gria Ban

The Washington Post - - Virginia - — Sand­hya So­mashekhar

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.
