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.


Tropiese Sangria - Afrikaans

genoeg vir 3 liter


2 x 750 ml yskoue Lautus De-Alcoholised Sparkling Wine

1 liter sodawater

400 ml gemmerbier

80 ml vlierblomstroop (elderflower)

1 hand vol kruisement

4 lemmetjies, in skywe gesny

4 perskes, ontpit en in skywe gesny

vars bessies soos kersies, frambose en aarbeie

1 kg gebreekte ys


Meng al die bestanddele saam vir die sangria. Vul ’n groot glashouer met gebreekte ys en gooi die sangria daaroor.
