At its simplest, sangria is wine mixed with fruit for a juicy, fun drink that tons of people adore. Some people add honey or sugar, fruit juices, soda, other alcohol, or make the sangria with red, white, or rosé wine. The combinations are endless; so if you “don’t like it,” that really just means you haven’t found the right recipe! Sangria is popular throughout Spain, Mexico, and Portugal, but we’d love to share 4 delicious sangria recipes for National Sangria Day (December 20) here in the U.S.
