Comedy Central

12. Plus, cheaper wine is actually BETTER for sangria.

NBC

AMEN.

13. Sangria is more environmentally friendly, because there’s less waste.

Those five liter boxes are the equivalent of like seven bottles of wine, so what you’re really doing is saving the planet.

14. With wine, you’re kinda locked into a certain alcohol content.

Paramount

15. Sangria, on the other hand, is as boozy as you wanna make it.

HBO

More brandy, please.

16. Also, much easier access.

NBC

17. And wine glasses? Totally not necessary.

Rules are made to be broken. As are wine glasses, frankly.

18. Straws are optional but recommended.

Bravo

19. Wine pairs well with fancy food. Sangria pairs well with PARTY food.

20. Sangria is cold, fruity, and fun. AKA the perfect day drink.

21. And day drinking is great. Day drinking keeps you out of trouble.

22 year old me after a night of drinking: "I hope I didn't do anything stupid." 29 year old me: "I hope I didn't agree to go on a hike."

Trekking through the WILDERNESS, surrounded by WILD ANIMALS, with no cell phone service and a below-average sense of direction? Asking for trouble. Sipping sangria in a lawn chair on your very own porch? Very safe.

22. Three glasses of sangria + sunshine + friends = You, feeling fancy AF.

Columbia Pictures

23. And because sangria is usually made in big batches, you don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a party.

FX

HEAVEN FORBID.

24. And sure, there are going to be die-hard winos at every party.

These are the kinds of people that probably carry corkscrews around at all times and really who can hate on a person with that kind of foresight?

25. But hey, more sangria for the rest of us.

Universal

Happy summer, everybody.
