Sangria shouldn’t pick up any odors from other items in the fridge, so make sure to keep the container covered. The pitcher top can be covered with a lid or plastic wrap for storage.

If you’re not going to serve the sangria right away, put it in a large bottle or mason jar with a tight-fitting lid. Maintaining its freshness and avoiding spoilage in this way

Sangria tastes best a few days after making it. Finish it within a week if you’re not serving it immediately.

Freeze the fruit slices to preserve the sangria. This prolongs the sangria’s flavor. Freeze fruit slices on a baking sheet until firm. Store frozen fruit slices in a freezer-safe bag or container until ready to use.
