6 Tequila Sangria Cocktails You Don’t Want to Miss

Tequila Sangria

One of our favorite ways to enjoy red wine is sitting in the sunshine with a glass of seasonal sangria. A rich, colorful combination of dry red wine, fresh fruit, and spices,  Spanish sangria first made its debut around 500 AD. However, sangria recipes have evolved quite a lot since then. Today, sangria cocktail recipes may include white wine, rosé, champagne, beer, and our favorite spirit, tequila.  

To start your summer off on the right foot, we’ve rounded up several of our favorite tequila sangria cocktail recipes. So take a look, pick your favorite, stir up a pitcher, and pour a glass.

Sangrita* {Margarita + Sangria Tequila Cocktail} via @OneSweetMess

There’s nothing messy about this simply sweet sangria tequila cocktail from One Sweet Mess. Its perky pink hue comes from slightly sweeter red wine, orange liqueur, fresh orange and lime juices, and Azuñia Blanco organic tequila. This cocktail is sure to liven and lighten up any party.

*In case you didn’t know,  “Sangrita” is technically a juice drink that uses orange, lime, and tomato juice as a palate cleanser when drinking tequila neat. In the case of the One Sweet Mess’ delicious drink featured here, it’s merely a play on words and fun name for a funky cocktail.

This blushing beauty of a sangria tequila cocktail from With Salt and Wit is sure to brighten up your cocktail hour. Rather than using a dry red wine, this recipe calls for light Brut Rosé. Add fresh orange, lime, Azuñia Blanco organic tequila, and enjoy!

Pick up a Bottle

Serving freshly made tequila sangria isn’t ideal. Give it at least an hour for the flavors and fruit to meld.
