Sangria with fresh berries is a fun and festive summer drink that is always a crowd favorite at celebrations and gatherings. If you are watching your blood pressure, though, it is recommended that you limit the amount of alcohol that you drink. That means no more than two drinks per day for men and no more than one drink per day for women. But that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the fun!

Kombucha is nutritious fizzy substitute for sparkling wine in this "sangria." It is a fermented tea that is full of probiotics that are good for your gut health. Probiotics promote improved digestion and immunity, among other health benefits.

Pomegranate juice and fresh berries make this beverage naturally sweet.They’re also full of vitamins and antioxidants that could play a role in lowering your blood pressure by reducing the oxidative stress in your body.
