Anyone who endured the bitter winter, which seemed determined to overstay its welcome, is very likely looking forward to Memorial Day and the unofficial start of summer. And summertime, of course, means enjoying summertime drinks, such as sangria. Refreshing, fruity and delicious, the Spanish wine punch is more than just fruit added to either white or red wine.
Here are 9 types that you’ll have to try this summer.
All you need for this perfect summertime sangria is a liter of cheap white wine, peach nectar, frozen peaches and raspberries, and, if you want, a peeled and sliced kiwi. Yum!
You'll want to splurge on a better-quality wine for this sangria. The recipe suggests a pinot grigio or a sauvignon blanc. This baby calls for fresh peaches, strawberries, oranges, green grapes and a cup of bing cherries, all of them soaking up that wine right before you bite right in. Nice.
You'll have to break out the brandy for this one, and it will be well worth it. You'll also need pineapple juice, pineapple soda and, naturally, pineapple chunks, along with your preferred white wine of choice. Smashing.
