RED WINE SANGRIA

What You Need

Ingredients

  • 2 apples
  • 2 oranges
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/4 cup orange liquor, like Cointreau
  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle red wine
  • 2 to 3 cups sparkling water, chilled
  • Equipment
  • Chef's knife
  • Cutting board
  • Measuring cups
  • Pitcher
  • Plastic wrap
  • Long-handled spoon or spatula

Instructions

  1. Cut up the fruit: Cut the oranges and apples into thin slices or wedges. Leave the peels on. Transfer the cut fruit to a pitcher.

  2. Add the brandy: Measure the brandy and pour it over the fruit.

  3. Add the orange liquor: Measure the orange liquor and pour it into the pitcher as well.

  4. Add the wine: Uncork the wine and pour it into the pitcher.

  5. Stir to combine: Stir the liquor, wine, and fruit together.

  6. Cover and refrigerate: Cover the pitcher and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or preferably overnight. Do not taste the sangria now; you will be disappointed! It gets softer, sweeter, and much more delicious overnight in the fridge.

  7. Top with sparkling water: When ready to serve, top off the sangria with sparkling water. Stir gently to combine. Taste and add more if desired. Scoop a few pieces of fruit into each glass when serving.

Recipe Notes

For sweeter sangria, use tonic water instead of sparkling water to top off the sangria before serving.
