Sangria time! Sangria, traditionally a wine punch, originated in Spain. According to VinePair, Americans were first introduced to sangria at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City. Interestingly, Spaniards do not drink sangria regularly, preferring tinto de verano, a red wine mixed with a fizzy fruit beverage. Sangria in Spain is mainly for tourists, but that doesn’t mean it isn't delicious!
