Raising a Glass to National Sangria Day: Celebrating a Refreshing Tradition on December 20th.

Every year on December 20th, wine enthusiasts and cocktail aficionados come together to celebrate National Sangria Day. This delightful holiday pays homage to a beloved beverage that has captivated taste buds around the world with its refreshing flavors and vibrant appeal.

The Origins of Sangria

Sangria, a delightful concoction originating from Spain, has a history that dates back centuries. Its name is derived from the Spanish word "sangre," meaning blood, owing to its deep red color resembling that of the vital fluid. The drink's roots can be traced to ancient times when Romans and Greeks mixed wine with herbs, spices, and fruits to create variations of what we now know as sangria.

Originally considered a way to make wine more palatable and refreshing, sangria evolved over time, especially in Spain and Portugal, where it became a popular summer beverage. Traditionally, sangria was crafted using red wine mixed with fruits like oranges, lemons, and berries, sweetened with sugar or honey, and fortified with brandy or other spirits.
