    Perfect Summer Sangria

    The Spaniards introduced Sangria to the U.S. for the first time at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. They served the fruity wine punch to visitors and history was made! The perfect pour for hot summer nights and lazy weekend afternoons, Sangria was an instant palate pleaser.

    Recipes typically mix wine, brandy, citrus soda and fresh fruits, but sangria is one of the most individualistic drinks you can make. Combine your favorite red wine and fruits and make your own signature Sangria! Just make sure to give all the flavors time to develop and chill sangria overnight. You'll need some basic tools to correctly serve the sangria as well such as a pitcher, wooden spoon, large wine glasses. Here are some sure fire delicious recipes for a kicked up version of traditional red sangria as well as a lighter brighter white sangria:
