Sangria dates back to the 18th century. The origin may be Spanish sangre (blood), in reference to the red color or Sanskrit via the Urdu sakkari (sugared wine).
There are many recipes for this Spanish delight with many regional distinctions. Traditional recipes feature red wine mixed with various fruits, sweetened with sugar. Spanish Rioja red wine is traditional, but Sangria blanca (sangria with white wine) can also be made. Last night, we enjoyed both as we celebrated the announcement of our Spanish exchange student.
