Sangria is one of the easiest and best cocktails to serve a crowd. A simple combination of fruit and red wine and you are set, too easy. An ideal cocktail for any holiday, celebration, ladies’ night or Sunday family dinner, everyone loves Sangria.
Don’t feel the pressure to invest in an expensive bottle of wine to make Sangria find a budget friendly wine that you enjoy. Trust me you will be pleasantly surprised how making it into Sangria will transform that budget-friendly bottle of wine into something irresistible. I like to keep a few bottles of budget-friendly wine handy so I can quickly whip up a batch if I decide to invite a few friends over for dinner or enjoy a mid-week movie with my little sister.
