The Overnight Resting Period Is Important!

Most sangria recipes call for the wine to rest overnight, or at the very least, for a few hours in the refrigerator. This lets the fruit infuse the wine, letting its juices get in the mix and sweeten up the drink.

Does sangria go bad if not refrigerated?

A bottle of wine, even with the oxidation after it’s opened, can be drank for more or less 36 hours after opening (eventually it becomes vinegar). The fruit would take time to decay, much longer than 24 hours.

How long does sangria take to work?

You will need to let the sangria sit for 2 – 8 hours to really let the flavors blend together. The longer it sits, the better it’s going to taste. Sometimes if I am in a hurry, I will only let it sit for 2 hours, but I prefer the flavors after it has set around 8 hours. That’s when it tastes absolutely the best.
