On the menu since October 2003, when La Tasca Spanish Tapas Bar & Restaurant's Washington, D.C., location opened, the Agua de Sevilla is based on a traditional type of sangria. However, instead of wine, this sangria is made with champagne and topped with whipped cream.
The Agua de Sevilla is made with brandy, Triple Sec, pineapple juice, sour mix, champagne, and sugar.
La Tasca boasts locations in Arlington, Va.; Baltimore; Old Town Alexandria, Va.; and Washington, D.C. The Agua de Sevilla is available at all La Tasca locations, but ingredients differ depending on location. At the Arlington and Old-Town Alexandria, Va., locations, the Agua de Sevilla is made without brandy and Triple Sec because Virginia law does not allow the mixing of wine and liquor.
The Agua de Sevilla is priced at $4.95 by the glass, and $17.95 for a 2-liter pitcher.
