Sangria Recipes That Prove Wine + Fruit = Happiness

Posted: Updated:

We are huge proponents of the classic cocktail, and we think any home bartender worth their salt has a few in their repertoire, ready to pull out when the mood strikes. But we also love to experiment behind the bar, and one of the coolest, simplest, most refreshing ways to do that in the summertime is sangria.

Most sangria recipes are pretty simple: Wine + fruit (+ sometimes brandy or another spirit) + ice = pitcher of refreshment. Please, please, please take note of one thing, however. Good sangria does not come out of a pre-mixed bottle. Ever. No matter what Boone's Farm tries to tell you. Just say no. All you need is a relatively inexpensive bottle of wine, some fruit and an adventurous spirit. Check out the amazing sangria variations below, and let us know if you have your own favorite blend!
