Sangria dates back to the ancient times. Some believe the Romans invented it, while others believe it came from Spain, and others say it was birthed in Portugal. It began because the wine that people would drink was not very good so they would add herbs, spices, flowers, and fruits to mask the taste of the wine. Now it is common to add all sorts of fruits and herbs for a tasty infused wine. Sangria is one of the most versatile drinks because you can use any combination of fruits and herbs that you like!
