What is the sangria, drink for the summer?
If you do not know what the sangria is, this is your post. Sangria can be defined as a beverage made from wine. The Royal Spanish Academy defines it as “a refreshing drink made up of water and wine with sugar and lemon or other additives”.
Its origin is typically Spanish, a very Mediterranean drink that is usually enjoyed in the summer to cope with the heat. For several years, this drink has been produced massively and industrially by numerous manufacturers, resulting in cheap and very low quality bleedings. However, in recent years there has been a current of demanding consumers with the product they consume, with a high interest in artisanal and natural products, aromatic drinks and with the same flavor as always. Many chose to make their own sangria from wine, orange and lemon. And precisely, this is how Lolea emerged, a gourmet and artisanal sangria that promotes traditional values based on the quality, aroma and flavor of this great beverage.
Many consumers opt for sangria over other alternative drinks such as gin and tonic, rum or vodka. And is that its low alcohol content from wine and its large amount of vitamins and antioxidants naturally present, make sangria a perfect drink for any time of year.

Its elaboration is totally handmade and natural, that is, no dyes or industrial sweeteners are used. Each type of sangria has its own ingredients that are always based on wine of course.
The wine comes from La Rioja, and it is sought to be of quality. Generally young wines that have not been aged in barrel are used to give a more intense color to the sangria and more refreshing primary aromas of youthful expression.
Orange juice or 100% natural squeezed lemon juice is used to make the mixture. No added sugars or preservatives. A juice of Spanish origin that provides the citrus notes that all sangria needs. And finally, usually add a touch of cinnamon or traditional spices that give a wide variety of nuances at the aromatic and taste levels.
