Wine is made from grapes. So, it makes sense that wine can mingle with other fruit as well. Add a little fruit to your wine and you’ll have summer in a glass–promisingly refreshing. We’ve found six refreshing wine recipes with fruit that take advantage of inexpensive wine, or perhaps wine that you’ve somehow acquired but aren’t necessarily fond of. We say every wine has a purpose, so why not use that wine to make a killer wine cocktail?

Sangria is a popular Spanish drink typically made with red wine, fruit juice, fresh fruit, and brandy – though there are recipes for both red and/or white wine. While Spaniards enjoyed this fruit-infused concoction for centuries, it was formally introduced to America at the 1964 World’s Fair in New York City.
