Sangría recipes

Anyone who's ever been to Spain has fond memories of a cool, refreshing Sangría. For those who haven't been [yet], here's a way to get a touch of Spain at home: a couple of interesting variations on the sangría theme from your guide and from around the Net:

 

DeLuke's Baylor Sangria

- yes [Baylor] Bears do drink, a lot 30-40 servings

  • 6.0L Good, hearty red wine.
  • 750mL Decent brandy - you're mixing, so no need to go all out on expensive brandy.
  • 2-4L Fruit juice, try anything citrus, combination, for some reason Tropicana Twister flavors mix well.
  • Fruit Lots and lots of citrus fruit, oranges, limes, & lemons
  • Sugar To taste

1. Mix all the wine, brandy, and juice together.
2. Slice and cube fruit into mix, squeeze some juice into mixture.
3. Chill for a long time.
4. Mix sugar to taste (before or after chilling)
5. Serve when cold, I prefer w/o ice. This will make 30-40 glasses, adjust portions as necessary depending on party size.
6. Do not worry about screwing up, it always ends up tasting good.


Jens' Recipe

  • Young red wine
  • Fruit - apples, pears, peaches, melon, lemon, orange
  • Sugar as needed
  • Something fizzy - 7 Up, Sprite, soda water ...
  • Booze - gin, rum, vodka, etc

The preparation is easy:

  • Cut fruit into 1/2 inch cubes
  • Mix wine, fruit, sugar, booze and let it rest in the fridge for a few hours
  • Add fizzy and serve cold with ice Hints

    Any fruit will do, but make sure there's a good quantity of citrus in the mix.

    The booze isn't necessary, but without it the mix can be a bit watery.

    Try different combinations of fruit and booze and be careful, it goes down easily but is stronger than you think!
