Ah, sangria. The grown-up version of the fruity and refreshing punch you couldn’t get enough of as a kid. Of Spanish origin, sangria comes in many different colors and flavors depending on who’s making it. From red wine to flavored rum, if you can dream it, you can find it somewhere in New York City. Not to mention, it’s jam-packed with fresh fruit. You’ll basically be fulfilling your vitamin C requirement for the day with every glass you drink, and if not, at least it tastes great! Keep a look out for these five New York establishments for all of your fruit and sangria needs.

They offer a selection of sangria flavors on rotation, including peach, orange, strawberry, and hibiscus. If you have enough people with you, or if you’re feeling especially ambitious, ordering a large pitcher for a great value is highly recommended.
