What is Sangria?

Sangria is a tasty alcoholic beverage from Spain. It combines wine, fresh fruits, and brandy or sparkling water. Sangria’s vibrant color and fruity flavors have made it a favored drink worldwide!

Best Wine for Sangria

Sangria can be made with different types of wine, and the one you choose can change the flavor of your drink. Cava is our top pick for a summer sangria.

Cava is a sparkling white wine that originates from Catalonia in Spain. Adding a bubbly twist to traditional sangria makes it an even more refreshing choice for summer.

Let’s make Sangria using Cava:


1 bottle of Cava
1 lemon, sliced
1 orange, sliced
1 apple, diced
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/4 cup of brandy (optional)
1 cup of orange juice or sparkling water


Put the sliced fruit and sugar into a large pitcher and stir them together.
If you’re using it, pour the brandy and add the cava.
Stir everything together, then taste and adjust if needed.
Chill the sangria in the fridge for at least an hour before you serve it.
