Sip and Savor

Cuba Cuba’s spicy mango-cilantro sangria.

June 2012

Endless summer evenings are pretty spectacular on their own—but the perfect cocktail can make them even better. Golden Triangle’s Cuba Cuba Cafe & Bar has been mixing some of our favorite grown-up beverages for more than a decade, but our go-to drink is the spicy mango-cilantro sangría. Head bartender André Dixion blends fresh-cut mango, mango purée, cilantro, jalapeños, Sprite, Triple Sec, rum, and white wine for a savory sangría with a dose of the tropics. If this doesn’t help you keep the summer heat at bay, we suggest ordering another round.
