Sangria might sound daunting when you first think about making it yourself, but really all you need it some fruit, wine of choice and my favorite addition, a sparkling lemonade.
What Is Sangria?
The word sangria stems is Spanish for a drink that is a mix of wine, fresh fruit and lemonade. A perfect pairing to hot summers in Spain. There are so many ways to enjoy a sangria, you can have it on the spicy side, like a mulled wine for a fall/winter flavor or you can have it bright and fresh with white wine for a summer treat! My all time go to sangria recipe for fall/winter calls for in season fruits and pairs beautifully with a full body red wine, see recipe here. Since it is warm now, the birds are chirping and I can feel the warm breeze in the evenings, it’s due time for a spring/summer sangria!
No Fail Recipe!
When I tell you that this recipe is no fail, I am being dead serious! All you do is add your favorite fruit, lemonade and wine into a bowl, let it chill for a few hours and viola, Sangria! One of the reasons I love making sangria, is that I can put together the most beautiful drink, and it looks beautiful on a table for company, fancy yet sophisticated. A little effort goes a long way with these bright wines.
