Theresa’s Refreshing Summer Sangria Cocktail Recipe
My gal pal Theresa shared this refreshing summertime sangria recipe to share with you all. Enjoy it. It’s really tasty!
What does sangria mean?
The word “sangria” comes from the Spanish word for blood, which is sangre. This is due to its dark red color.
Over 2,000 years ago, the Romans made their way across the Iberian Peninsula and planted vineyards along the way. As water at that time was unsafe for drinking, it was common to fortify it with alcohol to kill off any bacteria.
Sangria was introduced to America in 1964 New York World’s Fair, when the Pavilion of Spain served it to visitors from the Taberna Madrid kiosk. Since then, Americans have embraced the Spanish cocktail. It’s the ideal cocktail for the hot summer months.
The Pink Rhubarb Shrub Cocktail and Wendy Woo’s White Linen Cocktail are both another fun choice for a Summer Cocktail for the warm summer months. Don’t forget the festive champagne margarita cocktail!
Don’t forget the Infused Rosemary Vodka Cocktail
