Things to know about Sangria Recipe

There truly is no better way to beat the scorching heat on a hot summer day than to have an ice-cold glass of Sangria in hand! This popular Spanish cocktail is made all over the world, but to get started, let’s trace it back to its origin.

In case you didn’t know, Sangria originated from Spain and Portugal. There is even a European Union law that states that emphasizes that you cannot use the term “Sangria” if it was not produced in either Spain or Portugal. This also tells us that if it is produced elsewhere, then it has to be specified with the location where it was actually produced or prepared in. For example, summer in the tropics, like the Philippines. It has to be labeled as “Philippine Sangria”. Preparing this refreshing cocktail is a no-brainer. It requires accessible ingredients such as wine (nothing fancy, but not of poor quality either), fresh fruits, cinnamon, brandy, and a carbonated drink. Quick to make, nothing that needs a lot of equipment. What else are you waiting for? Let’s get to it!

Calories / Serving 25 kcal


  • bottles Red Wine Young table wine
  • 2 pcs Orange
  • 1 pc Lemon
  • 1 stick Cinnamon Stick
  • 3 tbsp White Sugar – Regular Sugar – Granulated Sugar
  • 1 pc Green Apple
  • 2 pcs Peach
  • 2 pcs Apricot
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • Carbonated Beverage Lemon or orange soda water, As needed
  • Brandy Optional


Simple Syrup

  • In a small sauce pot, add the water and sugar, and give it a quick stir. Turn on the heat, and set it to low until the sugar is completely dissolved. Cool and set aside.


  • Gather all the fruits and place them in a colander. Give it a good rinse.
  • For the oranges and lemons, Peel off its rind and set the rinds aside. Slice the oranges and lemon into halves and juice them. Set aside.
  • For the green apple, peach, and apricot, cut into small dice and set aside.


  • In a large pitcher or bowl, pour the wine, simple syrup, orange juice, and lemon juice (and brandy, should you opt to add this in). Stir for a few seconds to incorporate the liquid ingredients. Add the orange and lemon rinds, diced apple, peach, apricot, and cinnamon stick. Stir.
  • Cover the pitcher or bowl and let it sit for 2 hours in the fridge. This step is called macerating, and doing so, will bring out the flavors and aromas of the fruits and cinnamon. Putting it in the fridge will make the Sangria cold enough not to put ice, so as not to dilute the prepared beverage.
  • Should you choose to add more flavor, right before serving, add in the carbonated drink for that added fizz!


Do not disregard macerating the prepared Sangria for at least two hours. By skipping this step, it would not give you the flavor it should because not enough time was given for the fruits and cinnamon to come out.

Sangria is a popular cocktail around the world, but with Spain being its origin, this is the best pair with tapas or pintxos. To name a few that would go perfectly with this cocktail are croquetas, gambas alajillo, and gildas!
