New sangria recipes are a fun addition to a day with friends, game night, or for those impromptu summertime parties. Sangria can last three to four days, but if bubbles are added, it will only last one.
The rule of thumb for sangria is for every bottle of wine, a half of cup of liquor is needed. This all depends on how strong the drink is going to be, but if a tasty cocktail is the aim, stick with this ratio. Sangria should go in the refrigerator overnight to absorb the fruity flavors. Add ice and seltzer to the individual sangria glasses if bubbles are desired.

Insider tips to picking white wine; it should be on the cheaper side if it is going in the sangria. There should not be lots of oak in the wine, it takes away from the fresh and fruity flavors.
Insider tips for red sangria: the nice red aged wine is not the perfect choice for sangria. Stick with drier red wines that will be complementary to the fruity sangria recipe.
Sangria recipes are endlessly diverse and can be made for those with a sweet tooth or for those who prefer a drier cocktail. Pick a wine: red, white, or rose. Then, add brandy, cognac, or a liqueur.
