Sangria is the ultimate summertime cocktail. It’s an excuse to add three different types of alcohol in one drink and to load up on the antioxidants from the berries and red wine. It’s also how you treat your guests real well when you’re having a BBQ ;)
You have fruits:
You have booze:
And it all comes together in one refreshing glass:
Sangria adapted from All Recipes
1/4 cup cognac (or brandy)
1 lemon, juiced
1 frozen orange juice or lemonade concentrate (partially thawed)
1 bottle red wine
1/4 cup rum
1 lemon, sliced into rounds
1 orange, sliced into rounds
1 lime, sliced into rounds
2 cups strawberries, sliced
2 peaches, slices
1/2 cup blueberries
1. In a large pitcher or bowl, mix together the cognac, lemon juice, orange concentrate, orange juice, red wine and rum. Float slices of lemon, orange and lime, berries and peaches in the mixture.
2. Refrigerate overnight for best flavour. I refrigerated for 4 hours and it tasted fine! Ideally, the longer the better.
3. Right before serving, add in Gingerale.
