Ahhh, sangria… that quintessential thirst-quencher that seems to fit in at any time of the year. Keep in mind, this is an adults-only drink, but a kid-friendly version can be easily whipped up by getting creative with fruit juices and some fresh fruit.
For this sangria, we’re turning to Cooking Light to help show us how it’s done. Typically you’ll start with a red wine, more specifically something inexpensive, because you’ll be using other ingredients such as fresh fruit, liquor, triple sec, or spices for added flavor. Not a fan of red wine? No problem, you can just as easily substitute a white wine instead. Keep in mind however about how dry your wine is that you’ll be using because a dry wine may require more sweetness while a sweeter type of wine may not need much sugar added at all. Sangria is something that can be played with and fine tuned depending on your specific tastes, so just adjust accordingly. And of course, if you love everything wine related, be sure to check out our collection of wine cocktails to enjoy this season. Cheers!
