Happy Monday! Well, as happy a Monday as a Monday can be. Lucky for you, I have a great recipe for some delicious summertime sangria. I made this for a BBQ that we hosted over the weekend and it was a huge success. It’s so easy and I used some leftover fruits that I had laying around. It’s really versatile that way; you can use whatever fruit you have at hand. Some flavours go together better than others but you can make it any way you like. Let me know which fruits you use in your sangria.
- Juice of 3 oranges
- 3 apples, cubed
- 2 pears, cubed
- 1 mango, cubed
- 1.5 litre bottle of a dry red wine
- 3/4 cup brandy
- 1/4 cup sugar
You can also add sparkling water or tonic water before you serve it so it has a little fizz. This step is optional and I didn’t do this for my sangria but it’s all personal preference.
- Put all your fruit in a bowl with your orange juice.
- Pour brandy, wine and sugar on top and mix it all together really well.
- VERY IMPORTANT: cover your bowl with plastic wrap and put in the fridge overnight. It will not taste right if you drink it right away. After sitting for a good long while, the flavours will come together and it will be sweet, juicy and oh-so delicious.
Let me know how yours turns out, what fruits you used and save me a glass!
