INTERNATIONAL DRINK WINE DAY: Sangria

Sangria Recipe

A little exotic for February perhaps? We chose this super quick and easy recipe (from isabeleats.com) for Red Sangria because today happens to be ‘International Drink Wine Day’ - why not bring a taste of Mexico to your evening?

Preparation time: 5 mins

Serves: 6, very easy

Ingredients:

2 apples, diced into chunks

1 orange, rind removed and diced into chunks

2 tbsps of lemon juice (about 1 lemon, juiced)

1 750ml of standard bottle medium-bodied red Spanish wine, like Garnacha or Tempranillo

1/4 cup of brandy

1/2 cup of orange juice

sparkling water, to serve *optional*

Equipment Needed: Chopping knife, pitcher, stirrer

Place all the ingredients, except the sparkling water, in a large pitcher and stir to combine. 

Refrigerate sangria for 3 to 4 hours, up to overnight, before serving.

When ready to serve, give the sangria one last stir and pour over a glass of ice. Top with sparkling water for some bubbles if desired.
