A Taste of Spain: Sangria

A good sangria brightens up any gathering of friends and family – it makes a great starting point for any barbecue or party, and regardless of whether you are in Spain, the UK, or anywhere else for that matter.

The secret of a good Sangia is the combination of diced fresh fruit and seasoned/sweetened alcohol flavours. There are so many variations that it is impossible to list them all here – most people experiment to find their own perfect mix of flavours. We think the recipe below is a good place to start, and you won’t go far wrong if you stick to this.

What you Need:

1 Bottle of good quality, full bodied red wine
2 Shots brandy
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges
Other fruits, choose from: bananas, peaches, nectarines, strawberries (sliced and chopped into bite-size chunks)
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Cups lemonade
Serving pitcher with a good (wide) spout

How to do it:

Start by pouring the wine into the pitcher and squeeze the lemon and orange juice into the wine.
Add the sliced and diced fruit , followed by the sugar and brandy.
Chill overnight.
Add the lemonade just before serving.
If you can’t marinate and chill for long enough beforehand, use chilled red wine and serve with plenty of ice.
