Capitol Steps Sangrias
Inspired by the political satire troupe, The Capitol Steps, bartender Mitchell Keil created these two sangrias to celebrate their performance. You have a choice of two summer refreshers - one sweet and one with a little spice.The Capitol Steps are in summer residence at the Harvest Barn at the Cranwell Spa & Golf Resort in Lenox. What an amazing year for political satire!
