We headed over to the Seaport Hotel last night for the 2nd Annual Sangria Smackdown. A crowd of about 350 people gathered to sip sangrias and munch snacks resulting in another first place win for The Barking Crab.
And well-deserved it was. I remember the first time I actually had a tall glass of icy cold, fresh watermelon juice on a trip to Mexico and thought: why don't we have this at home? On a stifling, hot and humid day it was the most refreshing drink I'd ever had. So, when I tasted this watermelon, habanero, peach combination I immediately predicted it the winner. A long line at their station ensued.
Kudos also go to Ocean Prime, which served up our second favorite. their sangria included grapefruit and orange juice with fresh mint, a splash of vodka, pinot grigio and topped off with a sparkling rosé. Very, very nice.
Ocean Prime also featured probably the best presentation of their offering.
And, of course, what is the Seaport without the views. Yes, with all that construction going on there are still a few left!
