Scholars agree that while sangria is now attributed as a Spanish creation that got exported throughout the world in seafaring times – a version of the spiced wine drink was around thousands of years before!

In any case, sangria can now be found in all corner of the world (for better or for worse). Very traditional sangria is made from a base of red wine with chopped fruit added.

These days, the drink has been created and re-created so many times and in different places that now it’s no secret to see wild sangria variations pleasing flavor palates: white wine sangria, rose sangria, and many others.

In addition, the types of fruits that are chopped and added, the extra liqueurs and/or hard liquors added, and even the the garnishes have all been modified over time!
