Classic Spanish Sangria
Sangria is a Spanish wine punch with origins that date back to the 15th century. The traditional recipe is simple blend of red wine, brandy and fruit, but the basic concept allows for a lot of creativity when choosing ingredients. This recipe is close to traditional and is made with Rioja, a bold Spanish wine made from Tempranillo grapes, brandy, orange liqueur, fresh oranges and lemons.
- 1 bottle (750ml) Rioja
- 2 ounces brandy
- 2 ounces orange liqueur (triple sec)
- 4 ounces freshly squeezed orange juice
- 2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 1 lemon, sliced
- 1 small orange, sliced
- Combine the wine, brandy, orange liqueur, orange juice, lemon juice, lemon slices and orange slices in a large pitcher. Refrigerate until thoroughly chilled, about 3 hours. Serve over ice.
