Sangria is a wine punch. There are several variations on sangria recipes, but a good sangría typically consists of red wine, fresh fruit, a small amount of liquor spirits, a sweetener, and sometimes carbonated water.

This sangria recipe is a variation from the island of Puerto Rico. Choose a nice Rosé wine and Puerto Rican rum. You can easily adjust the recipe to your taste by changing the amount of wine, juice, or rum. Experiment and have fun.
