A Fun Way to Drink a Bottle of Wine - Sangria Recipe

I suppose it's a lot of fun to just pour wine into a glass, sip, and enjoy. You can even get glasses that can hold an entire bottle of wine. But, there are other, more fun, ways to drink your wine.

So, how can you make wine more fun? Make Sangria!

Sangria is light, smooth, and refreshing. You could easily drink a bottle (or more) of wine in the blink of an eye. What? You've never made it before? You should! Here's how:


2 bottles of red wine (inexpensive, but not really cheap) - 1.5L total
1/2 cup brandy
2 Tbsp sugar
About 2 cups sliced/chopped fruit (I used 1 orange, 1 lemon, 1 apple)
A bit of fresh fruit (I used strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries)

Yummy Sangria!
Slice your fruit. I cut my orange and lemon into rounds but diced the apple (so it will fall into my glass when I pour and I can eat it!).

Put the cut fruit into a pitcher. Add the sugar and brandy and give it a mix. Refrigerate the pitcher for 6-8 hours to give the fruit time to macerate.

When the long wait is over, pour in all of the wine. Your Sangria is ready to drink.

Before pouring, prepare your glasses. Add a little fresh fruit and some ice. Pour away!

★ You can use any fruit you want for this drink, but it's important to have the citrus in the first step.
★ This is a great year-round drink and an easy party drink.
★ You can change it up each time you make it, using whatever fruit you have on hand or what is in season.
