But first a few sangria serving tips:

  1. Color is a huge part of the appeal of this drink. So show it off with large serving containers of clear glass: pitchers, punch bowls, decanters, and the like.
  2. Fresh fruit in sections, chunks, slices, and even whole (as in berries) make sangria such a fun party drink. Provide appetizer forks, skewers, even toothpicks to allow guests to take fruity bites between sips!
  3. Glasses for sangria can also come in many forms. Choose a style that suits your party theme—wine glasses, champagne flutes, ‘highball’ or martini glasses, juice tumblers, even cups, mugs, or mason jars.
  4. Decorative trays and accessories, like colorful coasters, patterned napkins, fun stirrers, and striped straws complete the party look.
  5. A sangria station! This would be a huge hit with guests, especially if you lay out special add-ons like sparkling wine, more fruit bits, and garnishes for them to ‘customize’ their own drinks.
