BERGEN COUNTY, N.J. -- Come summer, sangria shines.

This plummy punch, a blend of various wines and fruits, not only refreshes, but, because it's often served in a pitcher, has the kind of cache other cocktails don't. In other words: it's all about sharing. What follows are some options for indulging in this crowd-pleasing concoction.

El Cid, Paramus: Bountiful portions and pitchers of sangria make you feel like you're part of a never-ending fiesta. Cheers to Summer: 205 Paramus Rd., (201) 843-0123.

Finca, Ridgewood: Here, at the "estate of small plates," as it's called you can turn any Unionville Vineyard bottle of wine into a bracing sangria blend. Cheers to Summer: 20 E Ridgewood Ave, (201) 444-1199.

Just Grapes Lounge, Elmwood Park . The vibe is laid back and relaxed at this wine and tapas bar where sangria comes individually or in pitchers. Happy Hour is means $5 house sangrias and $5 off sangria pitchers. Cheers to Summer: 213 US-46, (201) 773-3998.

Pintxo y Tapas, Englewood : It's hard to pick just one sangria at Pintxo y Tapas where choices include, red, white, champagne and blue, the latter of which is made with brandy, Triple Sec, peach schnapps and blue Curacao. Cheers To Summer: 47 N Dean St., (201) 569-9999.

Sangria, Mahwah : How can you resist ordering sangria at a restaurant that honors the fruity drink with a variety of flavors. There's the classic red, but also white peach and a sangria of the month.You can also opt for a sangria flight and taste all three or opt for a sangria cocktail. Either way you'll be dazzled by this Spanish charmer. Cheers to Summer: 1033 MacArthur Blvd, (201) 962-3310.

Segovia, Moonachie : A ruby red glass of sangria is the perfect accompaniment to a heaping portion of paella or mussels Segovia. Somehow, it just makes the food taste better when paired with its native drink. Cheers to Summer: 150 Moonachie Rd., (201) 641-4266.

Teros Restaurant, Lyndhurst: Ever had blue sangria? Give it a try at this cozy Portuguese spot where you'll also find the more classic red and white. Cheers to Summer: 224 Ridge Rd., (201) 935-8818.
