Some mixed drinks are just too strong and not everyone enjoys the same thing, beer can be very delicious especially craft beers, but they can have a ton of calories and leave everyone feeling bloated by the end of the event – a savory and delicious drink you can make is sangria, it is delightful mix of wine, brandy and fresh fruits with ice that goes with many different dishes and a really refreshing summer drink!
What you’ll need:
- 1 bottle of red wine – shiraz or rioja work well
- 2 cups orange juice
- 2 cups ginger ale
- 1/2 cup brandy
- 1/2 cup triple sec
- 1 thinly slice orange with a few extra pieces for garnish
- 1 thinly slice granny smith apple
- 1 thinly slice lime
- others fruits you prefer – citrus, berries, etc.
- wooden spoon
Add all ingredients in a pitcher, mix with a wooden spoon and allow to chill in the fridge overnight. Add ice cubes to the pitcher when ready to serve, a few more fruits and the orange for garnish.
You can also use white wine instead of red to make a sangria blanco. Sangria is a red wine punch that isn’t too heavy, isnt too strong its juuuuust right. Plus its pretty too! Sangria is the goldilocks of party drinks!
