Spring in a Glass

Sarie Kos shows us how to get creative with Lautus

In the Lente 2019-edition of SARIE KOS, Herman Lensing used the newly launched Lautus Sparkling to create a refreshingly summer recipe. Make enough, he says, because everyone will want to have more and they will even be able to safely drive themselves home.

Tropical Sangria

Enough for 3 litres

  • 2 x 750 ml ice cold Lautus De-Alcoholised Sparkling Wine
  • 1 litre sodawater
  • 400 ml gingerbeer
  • 80 ml elderflower syrup
  • 1 hand mint leaves
  • 4 limes, sliced
  • 4 peaches, stoned and sliced
  • fresh berries like cherries, raspberries and strawberries
  • 1 kg crushed ice


Mix all the ingredients together for the sangria. Fill a big glass jar with crushed ice and pour the sangria over the ice.
