Sangria is an alcoholic punch of Spanish origins that became popular in the mid 20th century at the World’s Fair in New York. Traditional recipes use red wine mixed with fruits, like pineapples, peaches, apples, and berries. This colorful version is a bold take on the classic sangria and the variety of fruit makes it great with both red and white wines.
This recipe calls for layering the fruit in a pitcher, but for an added wow-factor use leftover fruit to layer in individual wine glasses for your guests. It’s the perfect accent for the most festive occasions and we think it makes an excellent addition on Cinco de Mayo!
