The Sangria Project: Good Life and Gargoyles on the Square  
The sangria at Good Life in Boston is barely worth talking about. Think fruit punch. Cheap fruit punch. Then water it down. D- (It was drinkable, so it doesn't get an F.)

I had high hopes for Gargoyles' sangria, because, as a rule, I adore their drinks. It was the best I've had as part of the SP so far, but still didn't blow me away. Again, this was a sangria served without fruit in it, but it was very nicely balanced between fruity, tart, sweet, and with a pleasant depth of flavor, and slight effervescence. It was not as deep and complex as the best sangrias, though. B+
I'm feeling: chipperchipper

I'm curious to hear your review of the sangria(s) at Henrietta's Table.

blue_ginger: Sangria 4 dessert?? YES! Come in n try r new Summer Sangria Sorbet..Pineapple TY KU Sake, Red Wine Cherry & Citrus Thai Basil Sorbets
Now, admittedly, the last time I ate at Blue Ginger, the cost of my meal (which I still consider one of the best meals I've ever eaten) was $120 (including, I admit, two $14 glasses of Veuve Cliquot). So eating there is not cheap. but you know, I bet the sangria sorbet is *lovely*.
