What could go better on a warm summer day than a cool glass of Sangria. The root word of Sangria is 'Sangre' which means blood. Sangria should be red, not white like we do in the states. Spain's affordable, easy to enjoy summer sipper provides a great way to ease into an Adirondack chair with your shades and flip flops on. Better yet, it'll help you take the edge off and make sure it's off. Here's a recipe I like to make ahead of time...
- 3 bottles Spanish Garnacha - (or other non-tannic Spanish red wine)
- 1 cup Brandy -
- 1 cup Triple Sec (or Grand Marnier) -
- 1 cup sugar -
- 1/2 gallon OJ -
- chunks of fruit such as peaches or plums -
