The best summer cocktail for wine lovers to make is sangria. Sangria can be made so many different ways and party guests will be dying to know what delicious sangria recipe is hitting their lips.

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. Finally, add some tasty fruit, which is what truly makes it a sangria. Chill and serve the sangria to whoever is ready for a good time!

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.
