In 2017, Target announced it would debut a new wines for $5 each. The first batch, from the company’s California Roots line, included chardonnay, pinot grigio, moscato, cabernet sauvignon and a red blend. Now, just in time for summer, the selection will grow to include a 750-milliliter bottle of red sangria.

20 Reasons Why You Should Drink a Glass of Wine Every Day

California Roots Sangria has an 11 percent ABV and promises notes of fresh berries and zesty citrus. Just pour this baby into a pitcher with some ice, add some fresh berries if you’re feeling crafty, and then you’re good to go. It’s expected to hit store shelves starting May 20 and will retail for $5 just like its sister bargain wines. According to a brand spokesperson, the fruity booze will be available on a national level — but that doesn’t mean everywhere, unfortunately. Not all Target stores have a license to sell alcohol.
