December 20 each year is celebrated as National Sangria Day, and we join in the fun here at Barito Tacos & Cocktails. Sangria may be one of Portugal and Spain’s favorite beverages, but it is now celebrated all over the world, including here in Port Jefferson at Barito Tacos & Cocktails.
Sangria can be traced back to Roman times when water was usually mixed with wine to kill germs and bacteria from unsafe water sources. The name Sangria comes from “sangre” or blood which refers to sangria’s blood red color. The Romans added fruit, herbs, and spices to make the poor table wine more drinkable. Today spiced wine is popular everywhere, and December 20 and National Sangria Day gives us a chance to enjoy this flavorful drink.
