Easy Red or White Wine Sangria

Another weekend gone by and a new work week started!  I had some guests over a few weeks ago and I decided to experiment a little to make two versions of Sangria.  I made a white wine sangria and the other was a red wine sangria. Whether it is Red or White Wine Sangria, the recipe I’m sharing with you today, will remain engraved in your memory.

Red or White Wine Sangria is so very easy to make.  You can use wine, beer or a liquor as your alcohol base and then add a carbonated drink and some fruit to jazz it up.

Use your imagination to experiment and make different flavor combinations of Red or White Wine Sangria.

Most important, if you’re a lush like me, you probably won’t be able to decide which combination you like better.  Both combinations above are light, refreshing and make great spritzers to cool off your guests as you entertain.

Tips and Tricks to Making the Best Red or White Wine Sangria

These can be made ahead of time and refrigerated if you are planning a family function or gathering.  Avoid putting the ice in the pitcher with the mixture before your guests arrive, otherwise the Sangria will get watered down as the ice melts.

Instead of putting the ice in the pitcher, try keeping the ice in an ice bucket or bowl nearby.  Then place the ice your guests glass just before serving.  Pour the Sangria over the ice and enjoy.

Regardless of which Sangria Spritzer you assemble, you can follow this recipe template.
