Sangria has its roots in ancient Roman times when alcohols such as wine were added to poor quality water to kill off the bacteria. Soon, people began to add herbs and spices to disguise the taste of the wine, which usually wasn't very good. The first sangrias were likely heavily watered-down mixes of wine, water, herbs, and spices. The Romans would add anything to kill off the bacteria in the water and to disguise the terrible taste of the table wine. The name of the drink comes from the Spanish word sangre (which itself comes from the Latin sanguis), or blood, and refers to its dark color. Official accounts place the US introduction to sangria at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, when the Pavilion of Spain served it to visitors from the Taberna Madrid kiosk. Since then, Americans have been quick to embrace the Spanish cocktail, and in recent years many bars have started to serve a signature sangria to their guests. Join us to learn all Sangria and how you can offer it up at your next fiesta!
