Ole! I remember the first time I had a glass of Sangria. It was fruity and bitter and sweet and kinda perfect.
As I got older (and more into what kind of alcohol I liked), I absolutely loved to purchase the sangria you could buy in a carton (shout out to adult premium beverages in tetrapacks — because if you’re gonna drink, you might as well be environmentally friendly about it!) and just stick a straw in it.
Easy, breezy, beautifully buzzed.
My go-to for ready-made sangria was always Don Simon — which is basically red wine and fizzy citrus soda.
So, now that I no longer drink alcohol, I have to get creative in the ‘mocktail’ category.
So, one day I started thinking about the ready-made Sangria and what it actually tasted like — despite the alcohol and a lightbulb went off in my head.
I always have ideas but, like 25% or less of them ever work out in my favour — let’s be real.
