There are a ton of reasons to stop by City Market in downtown Rockford on Friday nights, but I think I may have found the best one.

Sure, there are delicious tacos, ice cream, pizza, cheese fries, lemonade, even cotton candy, but there's something special at the left hand corner of the Indoor City Market building.

It's the secret sangria.

I've named it the secret sangria because first of all, you have to find it to know about it and second of all, it changes every week.

Unfortunately I didn't ask the bartender what her name is, but I can tell you that she made the Cucumber Mint Sangria this past Friday and it was AMAZING. It was light green and incredibly refreshing.

The cups didn't make the picture, but our smiles were definitely brought to you by that secret sangria.

It was just a little bit better than the secret sangria I had a few weeks ago from the same inside bar, that one I think was watermelon.

All I'm saying is don't skip it!

Is it possible for City Market to top the cucumber mint flavor combo? I don't know, but I'm happy to be the Guinea pig.
