5 Ingredient Spanish Sangria

We've gotten quite adventurous with our sangria, but we can always count on Minimalist Baker to take us back to basics. This simple, traditional sangria has five ingredients and is closer to the original Spanish conception of sangria than some of the nontraditional takes featured here.

Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria

We know, we know, this much-loved strawberry-rhubarb combo is generally reserved for jams and baked goods. But we suggest you give the pie crust a break and try it with a sweet white wine, triple sec and seltzer instead. We owe our thanks to Vermodern for this one.
