This is the best Sangria recipe that we've put together so far. We made it on Saturday for the first time this year to kick off the summer, and will make it again when we have company next weekend.

Before you start, make sure your jug is large enough to contain all of the ingredients (minus the Ginger Ale).

Sangria

Ingredients:
  • 1.5 L of red wine - we generally buy a cheap Cabernet Sauvignon.
  • 1 apple (we use a Golden Delicious)
  • 1 large orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 pint of stawberries
  • 1 cup sugar.
  • 2-3 shots of brandy
  • Ginger ale (we get a 2L bottle, even if it's a bit too much)
  1. Slice the fruit and place in jug. Pour in sugar and brandy, and half of the wine. Mix with large spoon to help dissolve the sugar and pour in remaining wine.
  2. Refrigerate overnight (18-24 hours) in the jug.
  3. Serve in large globe wine glasses (sometimes called "balloon wine glass") by ladling fruit and wine mixture into glass, then adding ginger ale. We usually have roughly 60% wine and fruit, and 40% ginger ale in each glass.
