Sangria (Spanish: sangría; Portuguese: sangria) is a wine punch typical served in Spain and Portugal (the word means “bloody” in both languages).
Sangria is a popular drink among tourists at bars, pubs and restaurants in Southern Spain. In this setting, sangria is often served in 1-litre pitchers or other containers large enough to hold a bottle of wine plus the added ingredients. This is the quintessential recipe: tried and true, and therefore delicious.
