The Sangria Recipe from Terrasse Carla

The sun is out, and the birds are singing. It’s summer, and it’s time to make the most of it. And when we think of summer, we think of refreshing alcoholic drinks, which inevitably means a good sangria!

So, we thought it would be interesting to share with you the famous sangria recipe from the popular Terrasse Carla. Opened in spring 2022 on the rooftop of the Hampton Inn by Hilton Hotel in Chinatown, Terrasse Carla is well known for its popular happy hours and magnificent views of downtown and Old Montreal.

The chic terrace offers a number of reinvented sangria options, with an Asian twist that brings a breath of fresh air to this summer classic. Here, without further ado, are Terrasse Carla’s red and rosé sangria recipes!
