Years ago when my husband and I were traveling through Spain and Portugal, I fell in love with Red Wine Sangria. It’s such an easy drink to serve at a party because you can make a big batch of it and let guests serves themselves.
You can also make it the day before or hours ahead as it gets better the longer it sits!
A good “go-with” dinner idea would be my Tequila Lime Chicken Fajitas.
For a step-by-step demo on how to make sangria you can watch my video tutorial below.
