Classic Spanish Sangria
If you have some cold sparkling water in the fridge, you can assemble a pitcher of this refreshing sangria in a matter of minutes. When serving a crowd, double or triple the recipe and let guests serve themselves from a large punch bowl.
- 1 bottle (750ml) dry, fruity red wine
- 1/2 cup (4 fl. oz./125 ml) brandy
- 2 Tbs. sugar
- 2 lemons, thinly sliced
- 2 limes, thinly sliced
- 1 orange, thinly sliced
- 2 cups (16 fl. oz./500 ml) sparkling water, chilled
- Ice cubes as needed
- Pomegranate seeds for garnish (optional)
In a large pitcher, combine the wine, brandy, sugar, lemons, limes and orange and stir until the sugar is dissolved. Add the sparkling water and stir gently to combine. Fill 6 glasses with ice and pour the sangria into the glasses. Garnish with pomegranate seeds and serve immediately. Serves 6.
