for this past weekend’s birthday celebration, i whipped up my (in)famous sangria. i decided to keep it classic that day; recipe as follows. and, as you know, exact measurement is so NOT my style.
one bottle light red wine (should probably use something spanish since it is sangria. however, i used a chianti.)
a few healthy glugs of brandy (i used peach)
half bottle club soda
~3 tbs sugar
juice of an orange (or 2)
juice of a lemon
chopped fruit for pitcher (i used apple, orange & frozen strawberries)
chop fruit for bottom of pitcher. uncork wine and dump into said pitcher along with the other ingredients. the key is giving it time to do it’s magic. i gave my sangria about 4 hours of “marinating time” before serving with ice.
