sangria

A tasty sangria recipe from Betty's Cook NookA Refreshing Drink

With roots from Spain, it’s hard to believe that Sangria may have been first tasted here in the U.S. at the World’s Fair in New York City in 1964.

While I didn’t have my first alcoholic beverage until I was 17 years old (and it was a wine cooler popular at the time), this sangria recipe is easy to prepare and omits the brandy commonly found in other recipes.

Either way I think you’ll agree sangria really cools down hot summer days.
