Sangria Recipe
Sangria captures the flavors of a hot Spanish summer with its refreshing blend of wine, citrus fruits, special spice extract and more! Although red wine is used in authentic Spanish sangria recipes, white wine can hold its own when it comes to fresh fruit, ginger ale and a bit of sweet.

Sangria is a true Spanish fiesta spirit that should be served ice cold. There are several exciting variations of this drink, as there is no fixed Sangria, as is with any other Spanish specialty - it consists of a little bit of this and a little bit of that and whatever fruits you have on hand.

Sangria is more famously, a classic party drink for the summer. It is easy to make, inexpensive and very refreshing. It can be a good punch for a large party and by adding or omitting certain ingredients, you can make it as strong or weak as you like!

Sangria recipes

Sangria recipes get only better when spiced up with additions. And it is not possible to add any wrong ingredient with Sangria as it is only favorite fruits, spices and liquors. But success of any mixture will depend on the quality of ingredients added. For instance, the zest of a grape fruit can add a special zing to sangria. If grape fruit soda is added for ginger ale, then there could be added punch. Sangria is wonderful for early summer afternoons when the sun is hot and you would like something refreshing and fruit laden sans too much of alcohol.
