Candied Sangria

Try this fun and tasty drink this weekend on your friends.  Moisten the rim of a martini glass and in crystal sugar. For a more dramatic presentation use colored sugar.  Then fill up the martini glass with slightly cooled sangria.

Here is a very simple, basic sangria recipe that intentionally leaves ample room for improvisation and additions, and should therefore be used as a springboard to create your own unique sangria recipes. The unaltered basic sangria recipe below, however would meet with the approval of strict sangría traditionalists. Makes 4 glasses

Traditional Recipe

  • 3 1/4 cups ( 26 fl. oz) dry red wine
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • Juice of 1 large orange
  • Juice of 1 large lemon
  • 1 large orange, sliced thin crosswise
  • 1 large lemon, sliced thin crosswise
  • 2 medium peaches, peeled, pitted and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup (8 fl. oz) club soda

Combine all the ingredients except for the club soda in a large punch bowl or serving pitcher, mixing well. Refrigerate overnight. Immediately before serving, mix in the club soda for added fizz. Ladle into cups with ice cubes.

    This is such a refreshing drink, perfect for the season! I always have this drink in mexican restaurant, they often served this with a wooden spoon, used to get fruit out of the bottom of the pitcher or punchbowl. So its a good thing to have this recipe, I’m loving it homemade.
