Sangria recipes are the inspiration for many red wine punch styles. Sangria as a named drink was created in Spain and made popular in the US at the 1964 World's Fair. It normally has red wine, brandy, and fruit. However, it can be made in just about any style you can imagine.
Sangria as a mixture did not spring from the ether in the 1960s - or even in the 1800s. Rather, the idea of mixing wine, alcohol, and fruit has been around for many centuries. For most European parties this concoction was the center of attention - a big bowl full of fruit and wine that people would ladel into cups or glasses.
The beauty of sangria is that you can make your sangria recipe perfectly match the event. You can use oranges, lemon, and citrus fruit to give freshness to a hot day. You can create a dense blend of blueberries and blackberries to warm you up at a wintry celebration.
It's no surprise that in modern times sangria is the perfect party punch that just about everybody loves! Fresh, fruity, delicious, sangria can be made in any number of styles from spicy to mild to rich to bubbly. You can make sangria with red wine, white wine, and even sparkling wine. The sparkling wine from Spain is known as cava.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
