Today is Sangria Day — an annual celebration of one of the most iconic bevies in history. Yep, you read that right: she’s been around for centuries.
Europeans started mixing up the wine-based punch nearly 1500 years ago. And unsurprisingly, Sangria became a hit almost immediately.
While it was a European exclusive for centuries, Sangria finally made its way to the United States at the 1964 World's Fair in New York. The rest is history.
