It’s getting nice outside, and all we want to do is head to Baker Beach with a cooler of sangria. Given the current situation, we’ll have to settle for our front steps. But just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean we can’t pour ourselves a glass of fruity wine and have sunshine dreams. If you’re craving sangria, don’t ignore it - the heart wants what it wants. Thankfully, these eight restaurants in San Francisco and the East Bay can help you out.

You’re trying to get a tan from nothing but the natural light coming through your kitchen window (we have tried on several occasions). At least try it with a glass of sangria from Loló, which you can order for pick-up and delivery.
Canela Bistro & Wine Bar
The Spanish tapas bar has both sangria roja (strawberry and blood orange) and blanca (mango and passion fruit). You can order a small, medium, or large. We recommend the large - you’re going to need a lot to get through your seventh puzzle of the week.
The New Spot on Polk
The Russian Hill breakfast and lunch spot is serving sangria to-go in individual servings for $11. It’s packed with lots of fresh citrus, like grapefruit and lime.
With $30 you could get a Masterclass subscription for two months, or stock up on approximately 60 rolls of toilet paper. Or you could go for immediate gratification: a pitcher of sangria from Mago. They make a classic sangria with spiced apple brandy and oranges. Order here.
This Temescal spot specializing in Cuban/Peruvian tacos and sandwiches is now serving their cocktails to-go. The agua frescas are delicious, but since it’s one of those nights/weeks/years, you need something stiffer. Go for their sangria, which is available at its Oakland and Alameda locations for pick-up and delivery.
If you’re ordering takeout before a virtual Happy Hour catch-up with coworkers from five years ago (do you really have better plans?), the tapas and pitchers of sangria from this Uptown Oakland Spanish restaurant will do the trick. Their pitchers are $23 and serve two to four people. Call 510-893-0174 for pick-up or order here for delivery.
This Mexican spot on the edge of Jack London is now offering cocktails to-go. Their spiced sangria comes in a portable glass bottle that’s perfect to sip on while taking power-walking laps around your living room. For $40, you get six servings. Order here.
Alamar Kitchen & Bar
We’re hoping that the days of relaxed liquor laws continue as we’re now way too comfortable having bottles of sangria delivered to our doorstep. Alamar has a $20 quart of it for pick-up.
