Summer brunches were never this easy.
There are times when I just can’t have beer (yes, rather unbelievable, but true) and so I need always need to have an alternative ready.
I’m not a big fan of hard liquor, especially not in the summer, and so now I keep switching between chilled beers and smooth sangrias in the heat.
This one’s my version of an easy red wine sangria:
(Makes 1 pitcher)
1 bottle of red wine (I usually opt for a decently priced bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, nothing too fancy)
1 tangerine (or orange)
Half a large lime / 1 whole small lemon
A squirt of lemon juice/fresh orange juice
1/4 cup sugar (you could also use syrup)
1 can of sparkling water/sprite (even ginger ale could be used but I’ve never tried)
1-2 shots of triple sec/gin (or even brandy, but this is optional)
