Tangerine & strawberry sangria
Tangerines & strawberries
Tangerines are a nice twist on the usual oranges in traditional sangria. Strawberries and Meyer lemons add color and flavor.
Make in advance
Make your sangria the day before you serve it. It needs time to meld the flavors.

How long will sangria last?
I find sangria is usually drunk long before it goes bad. If for some reason you have made way more than can be consumed in 48 hours, fish out the fruit and store covered in the fridge. The citrus rind will become bitter and soft fruit will start to decompose, so you are better off adding fresh fruit when you serve. If in doubt, taste it.
See my post on How to make sangria to invent your own sangria recipe.
