What is sangria?

Sangria is a wine based drink that originated in Spain. So if you’re wondering if sangria is alcoholic, the answer is definitively yes! You’ll also find fruit and sometimes sweeteners, juices and other liqueurs.

The fun part about making sangria is that there are so many different kinds of fruits that’ll taste delish in your sangria recipe. Here are just a few of the more popular ones:

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Cherries
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Peaches
  • Nectarines
  • Pineapple
  • Lime

What kind of wine do you use for sangria?

Traditionally sangria has been made with red wine but now everyone has discovered that sangria blanca, or sangria with white wine, tastes pretty darn good too! If you’re using white, dry white wines are best.

You’re getting thirsty now, aren’t you? Ready to mix up  a batch of your own?

How To Make White Wine Sangria With Berries

Start by pitting your cherries and cutting them in half (if you have a cherry pitter, it makes this step super easy).
