Bottoms Up! The Best Fruits to Add to Red, White, and Sparkling Sangria

Bottoms Up! The Best Fruits to Add to Red, White, and Sparkling Sangria Sipping sangria - preferably by a pool or beachside - is one of life's simplest pleasures. This classic Spanish cocktail is traditionally made with red wine and brandy, but if you aren't feeling red wine in the heat, you can still concoct a mean sangria using white wine, rosé, or even sparkling wine. And as far as the fruit you should add, there are no hard and fast rules, but you should always aim to include at least two kinds of fruit: one that's citrus and one that isn't. The goal is to have fun and create a drink around flavors you enjoy. Just be sure to pick ripe fruits that taste good.

Scientifically, a fruit comes from the seed-bearing part of a plant that grows from a fertilized female flower, and fruits have seeds inside. Vegetables come from any other part of the plant. That makes for some interesting contradictions in common food culture!

The avocado is more popular than ever, as a spread on toast and as the main ingredient in guacamole.
