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.

  1. 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!
