Sangria is Yummy
I made this sangria recipe this week. Yum.
Some things to remember:
1. Use inexpensive (I used Aldi Winking Owl) merlot or shiraz.
2. Make it as close to 8 hours ahead as possible — shoot for at least 2 hours ahead of time.
3. Make more than you think that you’ll need….maybe make twice the amount.
1 bottle of wine
2 oranges, 1 sliced, 1 juiced
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup triple sec or Grand Marnier
Put the sugar and citrus slices in a pitcher. Mash them around for 30 seconds or so or until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the juice from the orange and the Grand Marnier or Triple Sec. Stir in the wine. Refrigerate.
This is great with mexican or spicy food, or with your typical barbeque menu.
