Happy Hour

We give up. After 4 years and each of their 1,460 days dodging inquiries about the recipe for our photogenic best-seller cocktail, here it is. You win. But please all we ask is you take your time to make it as delicious as it’s meant to be and choose well your company. Do not share Cuca’s Sun-gria with just anyone.

SUN-GRIA, red wine, iced fruit, brandy soda



A refreshing version of the classic, this cocktail develops as the tropical fruit ice cubes melt and flavor the drink. From a sparkling red wine to a fruity punch.


COMPONENTS: Red wine mix + Iced fruit 

Red wine mix:
¼ cup Red wine
½ shot         Vanilla brandy (to make it, cut 5 vanilla pods in pieces and put them into a brandy
                        bottle. Keep at room temperature for 1 week to infuse)
½ cup Soda water
2 tbsp Honey
1 tbsp Lemon juice

Mix brandy with red wine and soda, honey and lemon juice. Stir gently not to remove bubbles from the soda.

Iced fruit
1 cup Pineapple, juice
1 cup Tangerine, juice
1 cup Watermelon, juice
1 cup Yellow watermelon, juice

Juice fruits individually and strain the juice to remove pulp.
Freeze juice in ice cube trays.
Place the ice cubes in a glass and serve the red wine mix separately allowing your friends to pour it over the ice cubes.

Enjoy, although you may find it simply tastes better in Cuca... :)

  1. I love these colorful and fruity ice cubes, and although I don't drink alcohol and so can't try the red wine mix, I'll definitely be making these fruit cubes. Thanks for the awesome idea!
