Summer Sipping: Red Wine Sangria

Oh No Wonder

sangria

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)

You’ll need:

1 bottle of red wine (I usually opt for a decently priced bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon, nothing too fancy)

1 tangerine (or orange)

1 apple

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)
