National Sangria Day December 20

NATIONAL SANGRIA DAY

Across the nation each year on December 20, punch bowls and pitchers are filled full and ready as people gather to begin celebrating National Sangria Day with friends and family.

According to Wikipedia, Sangria is a typical beverage from Spain and Portugal. It normally consists of wine, chopped fruit, a sweetener, and a small amount of added brandy. Chopped fruit can include orange, lemon, lime, apple, peach, melon, berries, pineapple, grape, kiwifruit and mango. A sweetener such as honey, sugar, syrup, or orange juice is added. Instead of brandy, other liquids such as Seltzer, Sprite or 7 Up may be added. Sangria is steeped while chilled for as little as minutes or up to a few days.
