Best Cheap Sangrias To Drink This Summer

By

Summer wouldn't be complete without sangria on deck to sip and savor.

If you're a true wino at heart, you know every summer affair — from a beach picnic with your main girl squad, to a backyard barbecue — requires some sangria action.

Whipping up your go-to boozy treat can be a hassle, especially if you're in a major time crunch.

To make things a bit easier on your summer plans, here are five affordable, trendy sangrias you'll want to drink all season long.

1. Mija Sangria

Mija Sangria, $12, Ninety Plus Cellars

If the chic bottle doesn't make you instantly fall in love with this sangria, you may have to get your priorities in line.

This sangria is 100 percent gluten-free, and is made with real fruit juice. You'll still enjoy that spectacular homemade taste, and it's perfectly ready-to-drink for your convenience.

If you're more of a red wine lover, Mija's red sangria highlights acai, blood orange juice, lemon, and pomegranate. Their white sangria includes exotic fruits such as lime, guava, lychee, and orange.

Expect Mija to be your poolside bestie all summer long.

2. Lolea Sangria

Pack a couple of bottles of this sangria in your picnic basket or beach bag, and you're sure to have an even better time.

This is the most expensive pick out of the bunch (it still won't break the bank), but you can even use the bottle as a cute flower vase after you're finished with the sangria inside... so it's a win-win.
