Refreshing Friday happy hour drink mixes to match your mood and thrill your tastebuds.

With summer now in full swing, take a little inspiration from our Mediterranean friends and try one (or all!) of these delicious sangrias. Dating back to Roman times—a truly age-old classic—this delicious fruity cocktail is adaptable to any palate, pairing well with soft and strong flavors, sweet and savory dishes alike.

Try one of the slightly thicker red wine versions with your favorite selection of cheeses or a spicy chorizo-based dish for dinner. In the mood for a late afternoon sip and snack? The strawberry lemonade option is crying out to be served alongside your favorite easy-to-make strawberry cheesecake. But whichever of the four recipes you decide to choose from, they all pack a potable punch! See how to throw it all together in these simple steps from the Tasty YouTube channel.
