Sangria is a classic drink from Spain. It didn't make an official debut in the United States until the 1964 World's Fair in New York, but since then it's been a staple summer drink for many here. The combination of fruit, wine and brandy makes for the perfect refreshing drink on a summer day.

In addition to being the perfect summer cocktail, sangria is particularly great during grilling season. Grilling the fruit adds a subtle, smoky flavor to the sangria, which is a taste you can savor all summer long.

However, drinking the cocktail isn't the only way to enjoy it. Did you know sangria is actually a very versatile drink? Not only can sangria be made with different fruits like mangoes and peaches, but once made, it can also be used to add some sweetness to both sweet and savory dishes. Recipes like shrimp glazed with sangria will definitely impress your dinner guests!
