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
- 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.
