Fresh, fruity and not overly sweet, this five-ingredient cocktail recipe is the ideal warm-weather drink. As we head into the spring entertaining season, I encourage you to find recipes that can be prepped hours or even days in advance so that come party time you are relaxed and able to join in on the fun. After all, nothing kills a buzz like a stress-out host or hostess.

Five Ingredient Fruity Sangria - a classic Spanish cocktail recipe

Taking advantage of the late-winter citrus still readily available this time of year, my sangria is filled with blood oranges, navel oranges and meyer lemons. When I visited Spain it was also very common to see chunks of apples and pears in sangria as well.

That’s what’s great about sangria – you can make it your own using up whatever fruit is in season or you happen to have on hand. No matter what fruit you decide to add, just invite your friends over and enjoy the warm months to come.

Your straw is waiting.

    I could go for this, now, in fact. Never mind that I’m at work. It would look like fruit juice – and my writing would sing, no?

    I love sangria! The first time I had it was at a Nandos and it was perfect. I tried making my own once, but apparently went a little too overboard with the citrus because it ended up tasting like pure citrus pith with a hint of wine!

      haha yea citrus pith is not the ideal end result! Let me know what you think of this one!
