Summer is here, and nothing is more satisfying than a sweet, fruity, and refreshing sangria. Here is our favorite recipe for a red variety to enjoy this season.
1 bottle (750 ml) dry red wine (cheap is fine as long as it tastes good!)
1/2-1 cup (120-240 ml) orange juice (preferably freshly squeezed)
1/4 cup orange liqueur, optional
2 tablespoons brandy, optional
400-500 grams (3-4 cups) thinly sliced or cubed fruit of your choice (orange, lemon, lime, apples, pears, peaches, halved grapes, hulled and halved strawberries)
Spices of your choice: 2 cinnamon sticks, 2-star anise pods, 3 whole cloves, cardamom, nutmeg, whole black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours to let the flavors blend. Don’t skip that step – it makes all the difference in taste! Just before serving, stir sangria and pour into glasses with ice cubes. Spoon fruit slices into each glass. Sangria can be kept covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
