A well-rounded sangria has come to be a favorite for people who’re not very fond of other spirit-based cocktails. The flavours from the spicy, aromatic wine, the little burst of citrusy freshness from the fruit slices and the liqueur all come together quite beautifully. Try the original sangria recipe today.
2 bottles red wine (Fratelli Merlot works just fine)
1 cup brandy
½ cup triple sec liqueur
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pomegranate juice
½ cup simple sugar syrup
For The Sugar Syrup
Take equal parts of sugar and water. Heat till sugar dissolves. Cool before use.
For The Sangria
Mix all ingredients in a sealable container or pitcher and let it stand for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
#EatExtra: You could add in a few cubes of ice while serving. Or, if you don’t like watered down wine you could keep your pitcher on a bed of ice to keep it chilled while you enjoy your evening, to avoid making frequent trips to the fridge. Additionally, if you generally like cinnamon in your drinks, you can add a stick while mixing in the ingredients.
