Sangria is the name of a famous drink originating from Spain, made from fresh wine and fruit. This drink is trendy all over the world. And, the word Sangria comes from “Sangre,” Spanish for “blood” because the crimson color is characteristic of this drink. So, someone likened Sangria to a woman in love: sweet, charming, and passionate. Thanks to “marinated” in wine, fresh fruit will absorb a large amount of wine and bring a great taste to this cocktail. If you are patient enough to preserve the Sangria in the refrigerator for a long time before using it, its taste will be even better! And, today we will introduce you some ways to make Sangria!
Life is good! So, let us celebrate with this classic red sangria recipe. Sure, I am interested in a glass of wine at the end of a long day, but sangria is best shared with friends.
Sangria is also festive, fruity, and fun. And, It is a perfect party punch to pair with Spanish tapas or Mexican food. Cold sangria is undeniably great on hot summer days. The red wine base and versatile seasonal fruit options make it appropriate for colder days, too!
Sangria hails from Spain, although suspicious enough, my friend Ali lives in Spain and says they do not drink it often over there. So, I visited Barcelona with many friends in college, and we bought cheap cartons of sangria from the convenience store by the beach. Therefore, I do not recommend that stuff.
We are going to make real sangria with good wine and fresh fruit today. Through research and trial and error, I have learned how to make the best red sangria. Ready?!

Step 1: After preparing all kinds of oranges, apples, and lemons, make a turn for all the sugar, brandy in the jar or glass bowl. Also, cover the covered food with a lid or membrane, leave it in the refrigerator overnight to create flavor (or a few hours if you want to use it immediately).
Step 2: The next day before using, add fresh orange juice, wine, lemonade to this mixture, add ice, mix well. And, use immediately.
Step 3: When you enjoy, you can pour the glass and decorate more for the eye-catching drink.
Note: Firstly, the ratio of soft drinks and alcohol should be adjusted if you want to drink more or less. In addition, you can find this charming blood-red in the cocktail recipe Rob Roy and an interesting story behind that we introduced earlier.
- Firstly, this recipe will get better with age (up to about two weeks old) and can be refreshed by adding more juice/wine.
- Also, you may want to substitute a more robust red (cabernet sauvignon, etc.) for the merlot.
- In addition, you will need to strain the sangria into a decanter as the fresh juice can be a bit chunky. However, the fruit pulp seems to have an affinity for alcohol.
- And, if you mix the sangria 50/50 with lemonade and ice, the resulting beverage will be approx 10% alcohol.
- You can use a glass of relatively cheap wine for this.
