What is sangria?

Sangria is a wine-based mixed drink that originated in Spain. 

Sangria recipes can have either a white wine or red wine base (or both – although these red+white sangrias end up looking red).

Sangria is often flavored and garnished with fresh fruit like apples, peaches, lemons, limes and oranges.

Is sangria stronger than wine?

A typical glass of wine is 6 ounces of wine. A 6 ounce serving of this white sangria will have less alcohol-per-ounce vs straight wine because it is diluted with the apple soda.

Does sangria get you drunk?

While sangria has less alcohol per ounce, you should still be careful to consume this sangria in moderation. Drinking too much sangria too fast can definitely result in an unsafe level of intoxication.
