July 22, 2023 @ 16:00 - 22:00

¡Hola! Summer is kicking in and from the Spanish Semester, we want to celebrate it as well as say goodbye before going on vacation.
We propose a potluck BBQ and Sangría Workshop&Contest at the lake, with outdoor activities -families are welcome!

How does the potluck BBQ work?

  • We will provide charcoal, tools, cutlery, glasses and plates so you can cook your food in the public BBQ in the location.
  • Don’t forget to bring any food you want to eat!
  • If you have a cooler, you would support us so much if you bring it


How does the potluck Sangria Workshop&Contest work?

  • We will provide all non-alcoholic ingredients needed to make Sangría*,
  • You will need to bring red wine of your choice, or grape juice for a mocktail version of Sangría, and a 2-3 litre pot to mix it,
  • We will have a 20 minutes workshop on Sangría history and how to make it,
  • Afterwards, participants will proceed to make their Sangría version (creativity is welcomed!),
  • Now it’s BBW dinner time! (while we wait some time for maceration)
  • And finally, an Expert Jury** will do a blind tasting to decide the Ispra 2023 Sangría Master!

*: ice cubes, soda, apples, peaches, oranges, lemons, sugar, cinnamon
**: Whoever would like to be on the jury will add their name to a pot and three people will be chosen randomly
