How do you make sangria from scratch?
Sangria is a punch that traditionally consists of wine, chopped fruit and a mixer (usually lemonade, orange juice or sparkling water) as well as other ingredients such as liqueurs and spirits.
What is the best wine for sangria?
If you’re making a traditional sangria then opt for a light, dry red (no need to spend a lot), but you can experiment with using rosé, white wine and even sparkling.
How alcoholic is sangria?
It might be sweet and easy drinking, but with the wine and brandy, sangria still packs an alcoholic punch.
Can you make sangria with rum?
Yes, just use in place of the brandy. Here are our favourite rums to try.
How do you make white sangria?
Swap the red wine for a crisp white wine and, instead of the brandy, try experimenting with ginger wine, peach, orange (we use Cointreau) or elderflower liqueurs. For mixers, use sparkling water or ginger ale, depending on what else complements it in the sangria.
