One of pirates!!!
if you thought sangria was invented in spain, you are wrong.
sangria was already consumed in the eighteenth century, in the area of the antilles and the carribean sea.
The term originated from the english voice sangaree, which, in turn, was inspired by the spanish "sangre” to name this soda for its color. So, it is named after what was called "lemonade of wine".
already in 1788 Father torres affirmed in his dictionary of castillian that Sangria was "a drink invented by the English and taken a lot in the english and french colonies of america".
and in the wake of the mariners and the pirates that roamed the area, it was spreading all over the world.
So, Santa Sangría, was born.
In honor of the brave who sailed those seas.
