A drink originally from Argentina, this sangria recipe reminds colonial ties to Portugal and Spain.

Colonial Sangria

6 cups assorted fruits (such as mango, pineapple, and cherries), sliced or diced
1/4 cup thinly sliced peeled fresh ginger
1/2 cup orange liqueur, such as Grand Marnier
1 bottle sparkling wine
Juice from 1 lemon


In a large pitcher, combine fruits, ginger, and orange liqueur. Mash gently with the back of a wooden spoon to release fruit juices. Add sparkling wine and lemon juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour. To serve, fill glasses with ice and top with sangria.
