What is sangria?
Sangria is a delicious cocktail that’s usually enjoyed during the spring and summer months. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it for the holidays or in the fall too! It combines wine and fresh fruit for a combination that’s both refreshing and fruity with a kick! What’s great about sangria, is that it can be made so many ways. You can make white wine or red wine sangria, add vodka, rum or gin, and even add some Grand Marnier or Midori for more flavor. You can also add your favorite fresh fruits.
How long do you soak fruit in sangria?
The key to the perfect sangria recipe is to let the fruit marinate in the wine overnight (8 hours) in the refrigerator. The longer it marinates the better it tastes!
Another great thing about sangria is that it can be made in batches. If you’re having a summer party, make a few pitchers of your favorite sangria recipe for guests to serve themselves.
How long will sangria stay good in the refrigerator?
Sangria will stay good in the refrigerator for about 3 days.
