MSG for 21+: There’s nothing quite like gathering up your friends and family for an afternoon of Sunday football. If you’ve hosted a watch party before, then I’m sure you’re aware of the self-serve style of entertaining. With an open bar and kitchen mentality, you’ll keep your guests happy, satisfied, and well entertained. Since our kitchen is on the smaller size, we typically like to set up a makeshift bar on our back patio. In doing so, we’re able to keep beer and soda on ice and also set up a DIY bar cart! This season, we’re mixing things up and creating a Sangria station complete with flavorful additions and Black Box Wine

You may be thinking, “Boxed wine?” You’d be pleasantly surprised to know boxed wine has come a long way, especially in taste and quality! Black Box Wine defies traditional bottling with award-winning blends that are 40% less than their comparable bottled varietals. Their user-friendly packaging makes them a top pick for large gatherings, especially during football season. One thing I find to be particularly helpful during party prep is the ease of storage. The slim packaging easily slips into the fridge and is much easier to chill than 4 bottles of wine. This is where the backyard Sangria bar comes into play!

So why choose Black Box Wines? For us, it’s all related to the overall taste and quality of the wine. It’s really a taste of the good life for less! The Red Sangria flavor is light, fruit-forward, and not overly sweet, which makes it the perfect addition to any homegating party.  When choosing fruit to pair with the Sangria, we chose a mix of berries, oranges, and apples, all of which compliment the overall flavor notes.

We picked up a bar cart earlier this season and have gotten so much use out of it. They’re great for larger groups and very easy to set up and let the guests do the rest. For this particular setup, it’s really as easy as cutting up mixed fresh fruit, arranging glassware and opening your Red Sangria Black Box Wine. If you’re looking to go an extra step, mockup a few fruit variations and print out a menu for guests to create their own. I also like to set out an ice bucket for those who may be looking for an extra chill.

You may need to estimate how many guests will be partaking in the Sangria bar. I suggest keeping a few stemless glasses on the bar top with a few backups on the lower level. You can easily add in additional glasses as they get picked up. I’d love to hear if you’ve tried Black Box Wines and which varietal is your favorite!
