Five Great Glasses of Sangria in Metro Phoenix

Sangria — wine mixed with more booze — may be the most hedonistic adult beverage. It’s loaded with sugar. It ruins perfectly good fruit. And it’s incredible. Here are five places in the Valley where you can get a great glass of it.

Carly's Bistro

128 East Roosevelt Street


Roosevelt Row’s classic watering hole Carly’s has a drink menu that’s been Phoenix-famous for 15 years. The Whiskey Sangria (a Best of Phoenix winner, ahem) is a walloper, and where you should start. Or you can just settle for the red or white sangria. And, of course, the best spot for this is on Carly's lovely patio.

Multiple Locations


While Green New American Vegetarian may be better known for plant-based dishes like the vegan wings, cocktails here are also top-tier. The sangria is made with real fruit, served in Ball Mason jars, and available to go.

La Grande Orange

4410 North 40th Street


La Grande Orange offers many wonderful indulgences: pizza, wine, groceries, and a rightfully well-loved sangria. The white sangria, made using a signature recipe and fresh-cut fruit, is a popular cocktail order here. Bonus: You can also found this LGO cocktail at Ingo's Tasty Food.

Attention, those seeking sangria in the northwest Valley: We have a recommendation. Despite the name, Urban Margarita also serves pretty great sangria too. Things don’t get too complicated here; your choice of sangrias are red and white peach. Both come with fresh fruit.
