Despite the bloody name (la sangria means to bleed), it is perfectly safe to drink! The name highlights the deep red colour of the beverage, which originated near Valencia. Its original recipe consisted only of wine and water – that’s how it was served during the harvest. Next, when Sangria started to become more popular, fruit, juice, ice and other alcohol were added to strengthen… the flavor. When ordering Sangria, make sure you know the difference between it and Tinto de verano (the post about Tinto de Verano can be found HERE). Tourists very often confuse those two beverages. 


The best Sangria recipe:

  • A bottle of young red wine
  • Two peaches
  • 1 apple
  • ½ l of orange juice
  • A cinnamon stick
  • 2 spoons of sugar
  • Water as preferred

Un Saludo:)!
