The History of Sangria:
Sangria goes wayyyy back, like 2,000 years back. According to Vinepair.com, the Romans made their way through the Iberian Peninsula and along the way planted vineyards. Because water was unsafe for drinking at that time, alcohol was sometimes added to kill off any lingering bacteria.
The name sangria, is said to have come from the word “sangre”, which translates to blood. This came from the color coming from the red wine. Nowdays, sangria is made from red and white wine. There is no one recipe for sangria, so just grab some wine and toss in your favorite fruits!
According to Vinepaire.com, sangria was introduced to the United States at Spain’s pavilion at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City.
December 20,2018 has been named National Sangria Day- so mix up your favorite sangria or head to Babalu to enjoy some of theirs!
