Variation of a Rose Sangria
When we prepare Rosé Sangria, we have many options to prepare them with different wines!
Here are some of them, just be creative!
Red – It is the original recipe with a lemonade base, from here its name comes from the color of the red wine, the Spanish called it Sangria because of the color of blood + sour (agrio)= Sangria and we only changed the types of wine for the different types!
White- As we already mentioned, the white sangria will only change when the cocktail is filled with white wine (the type of grape does not matter, it is your choice)
Sparkling – Fill with sparkling wine or champagne!
Spanish – Although I said it, there are several versions of sangria depending on the country, in México if we ask for a sangria they will serve it without fruit, but in Spain, they serve it with mixed fruits.
Clericot – It is a version of Red Sangria adding Vodka and mixed fruits of berries among other fruits. It is the version with the most kick of booze!
Mocktail – Turn it into a mocktail by removing the alcohol and adding grape juice or cranberry juice on top to give the appearance of sangria.
