Ready-to-drink cocktail review: Bass Note Sangria (Part 2)

Bass Note Sangria review by The Pursuit of Cocktails 

I am back this week with two more bottles of sangria from Bass Note. If you missed it last week, I reviewed their white wine sangria, the Peach + Tarragon, and absolutely loved it. You can read that full review here.

This week is all about the red wine sangrias. As you probably already know, I'm not a huge wine fan and red wine is especially not my jam. But I know a lot of you do love red wine and I am always 100% down to try any cocktail so I'm giving you my full scoop on these Bass Note sangrias. So if you are a red wine lover, please take all of my opinions with a grain of salt. As always, I am not a cocktail expert in any way, just a cocktail enthusiast. 

And with that, let's drink!


Bass Note Raspberry + Hibiscus Sangria:

Overall score:

4 out of 5
Sweetness: 
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
3 out of 5 cocktail shakers
Booziness: 10% ABV
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos 
4 out of 5
 

I liked this sangria way more than I expected to. I thought it might be too wine-y to me but it was sweet and fruity - which totally took me by surprise. At first I thought maybe the reason I liked it was because I was drinking it with a favorite girl friend and that always makes life seem better. But when I tried it again a few days later, I still really liked it so it wasn't just the good times effect.

This ready-to-drink sangria has a great berry flavor to it but it is still light just like last week's Peach + Tarragon sangria. I can see myself enjoying more of this Bass Note Raspberry + Hibiscus sangria poolside. This is another great addition to your summer cocktail rotation. Plus, it is 11% ABV so it will get the job done and a pleasantly fruity way. 😉




Bass Note Blackberry + Sage Sangria:

Overall score:

4 out of 5
Sweetness:  
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
1 out of 5
Booziness:  10% ABV
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos 
4 out of 5

Right off the bat I can name a handful of my red wine loving friends that would flip for this sangria. The Blackberry + Sage is much more wine-y than the other two but I didn't mind it as much as I thought I might.

It as a great, rich fruit flavor. It is almost like a really good jam from a farmer's market, in wine form. While this one isn't as light and summery, it definitely has a place in your cocktail line up. This one might be best enjoyed a little later in the evening due to it's more serious flavor profile. (Look at me, that sounds so fancy. LOL) 


 
Would I buy these again?

While these red wine sangrias are really good, my heart is still with last week's white wine sangria. I will 100% be buying more of Bass Note's Peach + Tarragon sangria this summer. I'm already thinking about how to get my hands on more.
