The Summer Sangria is a refreshing, wine-based fruity drink that makes a great party drink. It’s the perfect drink for large gatherings and parties because it’s mild and easy to prepare.
Furthermore, it can be prepared and stored in large quantities ahead of time.
Most people prefer red wine in their Sangria, but white wine makes excellent Sangria too. It brings a lighter profile compared to its red counterpart.
Fruits such as strawberries, peaches, and fruit juices such as cranberry enhance the Sangria’s overall flavour turning it into the perfect punch for pool parties, backyard barbecues and other summer festivities.
You can also add ginger ale just before serving to give the Sangria a bit of fizz and sweetness.
For the best results, keep the Sangria in the fridge overnight to allow the flavours to blend. You can also chill the wine bottle before using it to keep the ice from melting too quickly and diluting the Sangria’s taste.
