Sangria

Taste: Fruity, best served with fresh cut fruit for additional sweet flavoring.

Style: A wine cocktail made from Tempranillo & Garancha grapes.

Description: Sangria originated in Spain & Portugal. A punch, sangria traditionally consists of Spanish Rioja red wine and chopped fruit, occasionally with other ingredients or spirits. Fruits typically mixed in sangria are peaches, nectarines, berries, apples or pears.
