Summer Sangria

June 14, 2012

I hear the weather is supposed to be perfectly warm this weekend—maybe even hit the 80° mark. What the what?! This will be a welcome change from the drizzly, overcast and overall yucky weather that has shaped our June.

To celebrate, I bring you Sangria!

Seriously, who doesn’t like a glass of sweet, citrusy wine?

Really. Tell me who.

Many sangria recipes call for all kinds of fruit to be packed in, resulting in a soggy mess that overpowers the natural flavor of the wine. This recipe, however, is simple and primarily sticks to the citrus group. The addition of club soda (right before serving) gives the sangria pleasant little bubbles as you sip away.


Summer Sangria

1/2 cup brandy

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/3 cup frozen lemonade concentrate

1/3 cup orange juice

1 bottle dry red wine

1/2 cup triple sec

1 lemon, sliced into rounds

1 orange, sliced into rounds

1 lime, sliced into rounds

1/4 cup white sugar

8 maraschino cherries

2 cups carbonated water

It’s pretty straight forward—simply mix the above ingredients (minus the carbonated water) in a pitcher. Refrigerate overnight for the best flavor. Add a splash of carbonated water when served.
