So what’s a Sangria? Some believe that traditionally, it was made with a red wine punch. The punch base was claret. (Psst…if you are a fan of Jane Austen, you’d of her heroines sipping gingerly on claret.) This was made from a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Brandy and fruit were added to give the punch a kick.

But the Sangria has come a long way since then. It’s zest to it. Some like it with white wine. And some have gotten rather adventurous with the fruit mash ups in their drink. We’ve put together a couple of recipes here. But our tip to – #unbottle your creativity. And come up with your own crazy Sangria concoctions.
