We Pinned It: Sangria

Sangria originated in Spain and Portugal but has steadily gained popularity stateside. There’s even a country song that extols its virtues (sort of)!

The basic recipe is red wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, with a small amount of added brandy. Of course, that is just a point of departure. Although it is typically enjoyed in the warmer months, apple caramel and orange cinnamon versions allow us to enjoy this fruity beverage in the fall and winter months too.

The taste isn’t the only thing that matters, though. While a red solo cup holds the magical elixir that is sangria quite well, presentation does matter. So, whether you make a single serving or enough for a large crowd, you’ll want to make sure you can see the rich colors of the wine and pretty fruit in some sort of glass container. A large pitcher or a crystal punch bowl work well as do mason jars and vintage bottles.
