If you love sangria as much as I do, then you know when you find a good one it's like finding gold. Not all sangria is made equal, and especially when you're paying 15 bucks for something that tastes like watered down orange juice. No thx. So here are 8 Ottawa sangria specials you need to take advantage of this spring. And I promise you, all of these sangria specials are completely worth it.

JOEY Lansdowne // 825 Exhibition Way #103

JOEY's has amazing sangria, also because they mix red and white wine in their drink. Their drink is called summer sangria, however obviously it's not a crime to drink it all year round. For $9 a glass, you'll feel great after in many ways.

Woody's Pub // 330 Elgin St

On Tuesdays at Woody's Pub, they have Ladies night which includes 2 glasses of sangria and a basket of sweet potato fries for $22. Uhm, is it cool if I go by myself and get those two glasses just for me? Thanks.

Pancho Villa // 361 Elgin St

This Mexican restaurant has glasses of sangria for $6.25. Pardon? And the bigger the glass gets the most expensive the drink gets, but a 'mucho grande' size is only $10.25. A half a litre is only $15.95!

Industria Pizza + Bar // 225 Marché Way #107

Industria has $10 glasses of sangria, which may sound expensive but let me explain. They also mix other fancy alcohol in it (score) on Thursdays all of their wine is 2 for 1. So it's really not that expensive, and 100% worth it.
