Take a trip to Spain and you’ll be sure to see long stretches of picturesque vineyards spread across the country. While Spanish red wine is popular worldwide, locals have been giving their own twist to it by adding spices and fresh fruits to create exciting concoctions.
The most popular of them is sangria. A chilled red wine, served with chopped peach, orange, lime, apple, pineapple, grapes or melon, it’s soothing on the palate with the freshness of seasonal fruits. And if you are fond of white wine, you can also go for sparkling white wine sangria or Sangria Blanco that tastes equally exciting.
