- Add sparkling water
The ratio of Nigori wine and sparkling water is up to clients’ wants. If you want to keep the chunky / thick fruit textures, add just a little. You can make an original drink of yours with your favourite level of sparkles.
- Add fruits to make Sangria
If you add some fruits, sugar, spices and herbs to the Nigori wine and leave for 1-2 nights, it turns into a fruity and juicy Sangria.
