Sangria is a drink normally made of red wine, in which seasonal fruits (apples, pineapples, mangoes, pears …) or particularly citrus fruits (oranges, lemons, clementines and nectarines) are macerated. Spices and liquor such as port, cognac or brandy are also added. Some even add sparkling water.
If you would like a little bit of Spain at home (even if you don’t have the sunshine), you can find below the sangria recipe:
- 3 liters of red wine… or substitute the red wine with white wine for sangría blanca (white sangría)
- 1 litre of lemonade
- 2 peaches
- 1 apple
- 2 oranges
- 1 lemon
- 1 chunk of cinnamon
Wash all of the fruit and cut it into chunks. Now add the wine. After letting it all soak together so that the wine absorbs the fruity flavors, add the lemonade, sugar, and cinnamon (at this point you can also add other liquors if you so desire). Mix everything together, cool it, and then serve it even colder with ice cubes and fruit chunks.
