Fruity Sangria: This simple sangria requires some patience, but minimal effort. If served at a party, guests will delight in nibbling on the wine-flavored apple and pear chunks remaining in their cups after their sangria has vanished.
White Sangria: Bursting with sparkling flavor, this clean version of sangría is unique in its use of ice cubes made from apple juice. For parties, this can be served in a large, transparent punch bowl next to a transparent bowl containing traditional red sangria. This pairing provides a beautiful contrast, provided they are not immediately consumed by eager guests, as is often the case.
