Who doesn’t love a delicious and refreshing sangria in the Spring/Summer ? It’s fabulous colors automatically add to your table décor and the taste will be sure to please your guests. If you haven’t seen your girlfriends in a while invite them over for an intimate get together and kick your party off with a vibrant pitcher of sangria.
Take a stab at serving this refreshing drink but first make sure you have the following ingredients available:
- 1 lemon
- 1 orange
- 1 apple
- ½ of a pear
- 1 Handful of grapes
- 1 1/2 cups brandy
- 3 ounces of triple sec
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 bottle red wine
- 2 cups orange juice
- 2 Cups of sprite or ginger ale
The first thing I like to do is to get the slicing out of the way. Slice all of your lemons and oranges, apples and pears thinly. Place the oranges in a glass pitcher. Then pour the brandy, triple sec, orange juice and sugar. Stir until sugar dissolves. Pour the apples and the pears, and grapes before you refrigerate. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour so the fruits can marinate and absorb the fabulous flavors.
I recommend you keep the fruits, wines, brandy, and juices chilled prior to getting started. Don’t forget to garnish your glass with your sliced lemons. It’s the perfect drink to share with your family or friends. Go ahead and enjoy in good health!
