As is the case with so many Spanish specialties, there is no fixed sangria recipe. It consists of 'a little bit of this, a little bit of that', and whatever fruits happen to be in the kitchen.
That said, at spain-recipes.com we're offering some blueprints for exciting variations on this drink. Feel free to add other ingredients to taste. Because the success of any mixture will depend on the quality of these ingredients, it is crucial always to use good red wine, fresh fruit and flavorful juice.
Sangría must always be served ice-cold. If serving from a punch bowl, stir it in the bowl before ladling it into a glass. Finally, if possible, drink it on the beach - there is no finer feeling.
