Tropical Sangria

The Sangria is a historic drink. Dating back to 200 B.C., this innovation was enjoyed by the Romans who used Red Wines from Spain. It was the Romans that began naming this “punch-like” concoction Sangria, the Latin word for “blood” because of the Red Wine base in the batch. Over a century later, this invention became popular in Europe as French Bordeaux wines were chosen as the base. Many decades later, Sangrias can be found with red and white wine being used as the base and many boast different flavor profiles and themes. We are thrilled to partner with Box on the Rocks to be their wine of choice for their July tropic sangria cocktail recipe.
