Everyone loves a glass of good sangria! This is a classic option for when you feel confused about the different tastes of your guests. Typically, Sangria is made with white wine or dry red wine, brandy, and lime soda combined with fruits like apples, oranges, and grapes.
However, try and experiment by adding different ingredients such as peach, cucumber, or lavender to make your punch bowl a little more special and unconventional! To add a tropical vibe during summer, add pineapple or guava!
Pro Tip: Make your Sangria a day in advance. This allows flavors to infuse well together overnight.
