Red Sangria

Add all these and let chill in fridge for at least ½ day:
.
1 bottle Red Wine      I typically use a Spanish Rioja, but any medium bodied red will work.
¼ cup     Brandy
¼ cup     Contreau or other orange liquor
1/3 cup     Superfine Sugar  (optional)
2/3 cup     Orange Juice
2 Tbl     Lime Juice
2 Tbl     Lemon Juice
Orange Wedges (about ½ of orange)
Lemon Wedges  (about ½ of lemon)
Lime Wedges     (about ½ of lime)  

Before serving, add one of the following carbonated beverages, mix well and serve.

1 ltr. Sparkling water, Seltzer, Ginger Ale or club soda.
For the red sangria I like to use black cherry seltzer.

Tips for Sangria:
You don’t need a high priced red wine.
If you can’t find a Rioja, a Zin or Cab works just fine.
The key to good Sangria is fresh seasonal fruit.
Feel free to mix in fresh berries, apples or peaches.

It’s best to chill the wine & mixers overnight if possible.
Allow the sliced citrus fruit, juice, brandy and contreau to blend together overnight as well.
The sugar adds extra sweetness. It purely a matter of personal taste.
Be sure to use superfine sugar, it mixes much more easily.

To keep the product cold while serving, I usually make a small ice block
out of fruit juice a few days before. Pomegranate, blueberry, cranberry, any will do.
Add this to the pitcher as your mixing the final ingredients.




Sangria Classic White


1 bottle dry White wine  - I typically use a Spanish white wine, but a Chardonnay will work.
16 ozs     Peach or Mango nectar (feel free to add more to taste)
2 tblsp    Superfine Sugar
¼ cup     Brandy
¼ cup     Contreau or other orange liquor
1/3 cup    Superfine Sugar  (optional)
2 Tbl     Lime Juice
2 Tbl     Lemon Juice
Orange Wedges (about ½ of orange)
Lemon Wedges  (about ½ of lemon)
If in season, add the flesh of a fresh mango, skinned.
I cut them up into long pieces. You can also used canned mango, rinsed.
I prefer to use the small Champagne mango.
You can also use fresh peaches, skinned.

Before serving, add one of the following carbonated beverages, mix well and serve.

1 ltr. Sparkling water, Seltzer, 7-up, or club soda.
For the white sangria I like to use a lemon/lime seltzer.

Tips for Sangria:
You don’t need a high priced wine.
The key to good Sangria is fresh seasonal fruit.
Feel free to mix in fresh berries, peaches or mangos.
As this will look great in a glass pitcher, color is important.
Add whole strawberries, blackberries or raspberries.

The sugar adds extra sweetness. It purely a matter of personal taste.
