Sangria is an alcoholic drink of Spanish and Portuguese origin. Traditional sangria is made from red wine, but today I offer a non-classical option, white wine sangria. The preparation is very, very simple and only takes 10 minutes of your time. However, after that, you should keep it in the refrigerator for a few hours so that the citrus flavor blends well with the wine.
Sangria is more of a summer drink, but it can also decorate festive tables in any other season.
