About our Classic White Sangria
This drink, emblematic of Spain, is best known for its red version (sangria coming from sangre, "blood" in Spanish), usually made with wines from the Rioja region. Here is its little sister, sangria blanca, more delicate and refreshing. They say it's for 6 people, but we also think you'll have a hard time sharing it! Yield: 6 servings
