Tropical White Sangria

Back in the days of the ancient Greeks and Romans, wine wasn’t nearly as delicious as it is today; as a result, it was usually mixed with water, juices, spices, and even fruits to make it drinkable. In 15th century Spain, red wine or “sangria” (which comes from the Spanish word for “blood”) mixed with spices, fruits, and water began to gain popularity – after a couple thousand years and a whole lot of partying, sangria has evolved into the boozy, fruity beverage we all love today! Nowadays, you can combine almost any wine, booze, and fruit and call it sangria; this white wine version takes a dip down to the tropics with pineapple and passionfruit juice, as well as fresh mangos and oranges for the perfect end-of-summer cocktail.
