Simple Sangria

 

I've read that sangria originated in Spain and Portugal, which makes sense

 

 

since there are wonderful wines that come from both countries.  It traditionally

 

 

contains wine, fruit, and liquor.  Well, in this case I am not one to break with

 

 

tradition.  I have found out, however, that it is not something that can just be

 

 

thrown together.  Alsothe addition of sugar is necessary to bring all the

 

 

flavors together.

Simple Sangria

 

Ingredients

  1 lemon, thinly sliced

 

•  1 orange, thinly sliced

 

  ¼ cup superfine sugar

 

  ½ cup of a good orange-flavored liqueur, like Triple-Sec or Gran 

 

  ½ gallon red Burgundy wine (I use red moscata, it's lighter in taste)

 

•  ½ cup of a good brandy or cognac, like Paul Masson or Hennessy

 

•  1 quart club soda

 

  Ice

You will need a large glass container with a lid that seals. (for

 

 

storage)

Instructions

1.  In the glass container, layer the citrus slices and the sugar; slowly

 

 

     pour in the orange liqueur and red wine.  Gently stir the mixture

 

 

     several times and refrigerate a few hours or even better,

 

 

     overnight.  

2.  Add the brandy; continue chilling until ready to serve.  Add ice to

 

 

     the serving glasses; pour the sangria over the ice.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Options

 

  You can also add lime, apple, cherries or pineapple.  

  Glass cups are a great way to serve sangria on a buffet.  Wine glasses

 

 

    works well too.
