    Two popular sister restaurants in DC are Cactus Cantina and Lauriol Plaza. We ate at CC and had some great Sangria. Also had some nice Sangria at Jaleos, a DC tapas bar.

    Does anyone know the recipes used by any of these restaurants for their Sangria?

    Also, the mojitos at CC are said to be excellent, but they were out of fresh mint the night we visited. I'd like to try mixing one of those too, if anyone knows the recipe. I have a mojito recipe from the Bacardi site, and it is decent.

    Thanks for any help.

    Mojito:

    In a tall (collins) glass, insert a sprig of fresh mint. Using a wooden spoon, crush the mint, releasing the essential oils. Add ice cubes, a shot of white rum and then squeeze a lime wedge. Fill with seltzer water or club soda and stir.

    You need about 2 tsp of sugar.
