- 1½ cups orange juice

Sangria is ideal if you don’t want to drink too much alcohol, as the wine gets diluted by the other ingredients. Let the mixture sit in the fridge so the flavours can meld together before adding the ice. You can use a dry white wine for this recipe if you’d prefer it, or even a sparkling wine, however red wine is traditional. This refreshing cocktail is great as part of a summery barbeque alongside tacos with all the trimmings!
