Expert Tips

You can make this recipe several hours ahead and refrigerate it, except don't add the carbonated beverage or the fresh raspberries. Add these ingredients just before serving.

Thread a couple of fresh raspberries on a toothpick for a quick and easy garnish.

Sangria was originally made with red wine and fruit juices. The Spanish word sangria refers to the blood red color of the beverage. White or blush wines offer a lighter version of this summer drink.
