When it comes to Sangria cocktails, it seems every one of us has his own recipe. And there is nothing wrong with that.
Traditionally served as a punch in a large pitcher or bowl, the “original” ingredients are red wine and chopped fruits. Other “original” ingredients often include orange juice or brandy.
Some people like to have their sangria sweeter, others prefer it more acidy and bitter. With that in mind, as long as there is wine and fruits, you can call it sangria.
Today, we will look over some of the amazing Sangria recipes you can try. We do not have a favorite, we are all for refreshing drinks and parties.
1. Sangria With Oranges, Fig And Cinnamon
People in Spain will tell you that cinnamon is the secret ingredient to their fabulous beverage. Cinnamon gives the Sangria that perfect kick, a sweet balance between bitter and sweet. Figs are a bit unconventional, but they definitely bring the sweetness factor to a high level.
2. Summer Loving Rose Sangria
Rose cocktails are getting more and more popular by the minute. We see them all around. One of the most popular rose cocktails is margarita, but you can get a loving Sangria as well.
3. Pineapple Rum Punch Sangria
We said at the beginning that anything with wine and fruits is sangria. But many other punches are considered Sangria as well. For those craving a bit stronger kick than wine, you can go with hard liquor like rum. Pineapple will give you that refreshing summer vibe.
4. Blueberry Lavender Sangria

8. Melon Sangria
Melons are another fruit that is considered summer fruit. The beauty of melons is they are made of mostly water.
