SANGRIA Wine Making Recipe

The following is more a set of guidelines and less of a recipe, but nonetheless if you don’t know what Sangria is or how to make sangria it is worth reading.

The basic sangria recipe is in fact very basic:
• One bottle red wine
• A shot (or two) of brandy, rum, pure grain alcohol or other liquor
• Juice of one lime or lemon
• Assorted chopped fruit

The fruit you choose will depend on your tastes, but the idea is to use things that will soak up the alcohol and give their own juices to the mixture. Strawberries, grapes, peaches, oranges, kiwi, mango and melon are all good choices.

Mix all the ingredients together and chill. If you can leave this overnight, that would be great, but even a few hours to chill the whole thing down and get the flavors mixed together will be helpful.

To serve, pour some of the sangria and put some pieces of fruit in the glass.
