Recently, the Cheesecake Factory has revealed some of its iconic recipes. Now that everyone has made those restaurant desserts, it is time to have a cocktail to pair with them.

Although the exact origin of sangria is unclear, it is often associated with and is popular in Spain. At the 1964 World’s Fair, the Spanish pavilion served this wine punch. From those origins, it became a popular party drink.

Basically, it is a combination of red wine, fruit and other liquors. Every recipe varies and personal preference does matter.

For some people, the best part of sangria is the soaked fruit in the cocktail. It is definitely a different way to ensure that you’ve had your daily serving of fruit.

Here’s how to make the Cheesecake Factory Red Sangria Recipe.

Thinking about a red sangria, this cocktail pairs well with fish. Thinking about the Spanish roots, a paella would be great choice. Also, shrimp skewers or even some fish tacos would work.

For a heartier meal, a flank steak is a great choice. Just like red wine pairs with steak, a red sangria can stand up to that flavorful steak dish.

Additionally, a red sangria can be enjoyed with dessert. With so many cheesecake options from the restaurant, it could be fun to see which cheesecake flavor works best. Maybe the new Snickers inspired cheesecake flavor could make for a tasty combination.
