Classic Mixology: Cocktail & Mixed Drink Recipes


Called Sangaree (or Sangre in the UK) in the 18th and 19th centuries, Sangria is a wine punch typical of Spain. Sangaree might have been introduced to the Americas via the Caribbean.  It was usually made with Madeira or other strong wines (e.g., port, sherry) combined with a sweetener, a spirit, chopped or sliced fruit and maybe soda water.
