Did you know December 20 is National Sangria Day? This annual holiday is a marvelous excuse to
sip on a sangria or two in the company of your friends. Learn more about National Sangria Day by continuing on with this blog post.
Sangria is a beverage made from wine and fruit, which was originated in Spain. More than 2,000 years ago, Romans inhabited Spain and had to get creative with their beverages. During this time, the water of Spain was unsafe to drink because of bacteria. To make the water safe, it had to be fortified with alcohol. It was through this process that sangrias were created. The name “sangria” comes from the word “sangre,” which means blood. Sangria is naturally dark in color, similar to the color of blood. The first sangria was likely very watered down and made from wine, water, herbs, and spices.
The modern sangria is a little different and a lot more delicious. Spiced wine and fruit are served in a variety of flavors and offer a refreshing way to unwind. Some sangria is served with the fruit in the glass, while other sangria drinks are separated from the fruit with a strainer before serving. You can even make sangria with sparkling water to add some carbonation to the beverage.
