Summer is arriving fast. The buds on the trees are starting to bloom and the mercury has shot up in the last few days. Montrealers are doing all sorts of things to prepare for the warmer season: wardrobes are changing, patio furniture is being dusted off and air conditioning units are coming out of retirement.\nTo me, nothing says summer like a good pitcher of sangria. There's something about the cool, refreshing drink that is just perfect for a warm day. Whether you prefer a white sangria, a rosé or the traditional red sangria, we can all agree that the sweet, fruity drink is the ultimate picnic drink.\nIt's also the perfect drink to share with friends at a bar. Whatever your favourite way to drink it is, we've got the perfect spot for you.\nVices et Versa\nWhere: 6631 St Laurent Blvd, Montreal.\nWhat: This cozy, Little Italy bar serves up a variety of cocktails and snacks.
