History of the Sangria
Sangria has existed for well over 2,000 years (we humans are a clever bunch). The prevailing theory is that the Romans began a practice of mixing wine with water in order to sanitize the water of their expanding empire as it reached the Iberian Peninsula (where Portugal and Spain are now). By the 18th century, Sangria had spread to Latin America and did not become a popular drink in the U.S. until it was showcased at the 1964 World Fair in New York.
The word Sangria is named after the Spanish word for “blood” because of its dark-red color that comes from the wine.
