It's one of the most international Spanish drinks. Everyone has sometimes drunk sangria, that drink that comes always by the summer thanks to its refreshing powers.
Although there are many ways to make sangria, the most traditional is really simple and inexpensive, since you have just to mix wine with portions of various fruits and ice. The secret of its flavor depends on the quality of the fruit and wine used.
A popular sangria which you can get at a lot of places in our country, puts together peaches, lemon and orange, sugar, gin, macerated red wine, a glass of lemon soda and lemon slices. Add a lot of ice, shake and serve in a large jar, since it will be usually consumed by several people.
It's one of the refreshments for the summer, ideal for sharing with groups of friends, especially when we eat by the sea, with a paella or a fideuà. We recommend not drinking sangria in excess, as it could inebriate you quickly being so sweet, thanks to the fruit and large doses of sugar.
With lots of fruits
Another way to make sangria is mixing even more fruits, always at choice of the consumer. From apples, pears, peaches, lemons, oranges... or even soda, in addition to wine.
With various wines
Sangria is not made only with red wine, some variants also incorporate white and rosé wines.
Sangria with strawberries is also called “Love sangria” and usually consumed in Valentine's Day. It's made with rosé wine and has a very sweet taste. It includes soda, sugar, and some other liquor but in small doses.
One variant of the traditional sangria is the the one with cava. It includes various fruits and other alcoholic beverages such as brandy or cointreau. Serve very cold!
