A Spanish tapas meal is never complete without a glass of sangria…or two. There are several ways to incorporate your favorite fruit, sparkling wine, and champagne into your own sangria recipes, but here are three of our favorites.

One can never go wrong with a classic red wine sangria. It’s even more refreshing with loads of fruit and a hint of champagne. Served over ice, it’s delicious and refreshing.

Lemonade is another drink we love to sip on all season long. It’s perfect on a hot Summer day and goes great with a few light bite tapas. Add some raspberries for more flavor and a fresh taste of Summer.
