I think we can officially start carnival season :-D
If you are organizing house party I think this recipe will be great for you. This is my favourite recipe for SANGRIA. It is as delicious as it is easy, and it only gets better as you spice it up with your own additions! Really, it is hard to add the "wrong" ingredient here. So chill and enjoy the lovely taste!
Here is what you need:
1 Bottle of red wine (depends what you like, but you can use: Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges. (You can also add apples)
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 Shot brandy (I actually prefer 2 shots. It makes it even better, so don’t afraid to add as much as you want)
2 Cups ginger ale
Pour wine in the pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon and orange into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) and add sugar and brandy. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale just before serving.
If you'd like to serve right away, use chilled red wine and serve over lots of ice.
Addition ideas: sliced strawberries, peaches, handful of fresh blueberries, raspberries, kiwi, a shot or two of gin, brandy or rum, a cup of ginger ale, citrus soda pop or lime juice. To be honest I never tried to add any of above ingredients but the things you have to be a little bit of adventurous and you can play around with this recipe.
Enjoy you drinks
