Sangria is my favorite cocktail to serve at a summer party. Namely, because it’s delicious and just so easy to prepare and serve! Generally I make mine the evening before so the flavors have a chance to meld overnight, which also cuts down on the prep the day of your gathering. I like to put mine in a big dispenser and set it up self-serve style with glasses, straws and a bit of extra fruit for garnishing. My go-to sangria is a white citrus version that I am going to share with you next week, but these three sangria recipes have also recently caught my eye! If you really want your sangria to be special, skip the typical fruits like apples and grapes and get a little wild with things like strawberries, watermelon, blood oranges and pineapple. Swap out the wine for champagne for a delightfully bubbly version? Don’t mind if I do!
