I agree and have made it several times this year….brandy is a must in the batches I prepare.
I got my recipe when I was on the Spanish coast many years ago. My daughter-in-law is from Spain and she says its perfect! To the ones posted before, I add orange juice and use powdered sugar for sweetening, if needed. I also add rum & brandy to the wine and some Triple Sec. At the last minute I add chopped red apples. This is so nice at Christmas in a glass punch bowl!We are serving it at the open house next month at our new beach house! It goes well with most anything.
Seafarer’s is great, but fabulousoyster’s is closer to what is served in Spain; there is almost always brandy added at the end, and some "sparkling" soda (lemon lime, orange, etc.) is added to give it some effervescence. The brandy is what I find tends to really give it a nice kick.
I have been looking for years, for a simple, tasting sangria receipe, yours looks like what I have been looking for.
Bottle red wine
Juice of lemon/lime/orange and sliced too
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup brandy
1/2 bottle orange Fanta soda.
Chill 3 hours.
I have a white sangria recipe too if you’d like.
1 bottle cheap dry red wine- Spanish would be appropriate.
1 Orange sliced thinly
1 Lemon " "
1 Lime " "
Simple syrup to taste (1 cup sugar, 1 cup water simmered for 10 minutes)
Mix all together and chill for a couple of hours.
Looking for your best Sangria recipe. I have looked up many on the net, but I trust you guys more.
