Sangria, Fruiterita

Sangria

This recipe is dedicate to all of those people who come to Barcelona and try Sangria in a local bar for the first time. Especially to my dearest girl.

This makes the perfect summer drink, party punch. It’s easy to do, it’s vibrant, easy to drink… And you will be learning a typical Spanish drink!

I hope everyone can enjoy, and feel Barcelona nearer when you try it.

Summer in Barcelona

 

 

Home made

Ingredients:

- 3 peaches
- 2 oranges
- 1/2 lemon
- 50 grams sugar
- 5 cl of brandy
- 1 and 1/2 liter of red wine ( tinto )
- 1 cinnamon stick
- 1 glass of orange  juice
- 1/2 cup lemon juice
- 1 lemon rind spiral cut

Preparation:

Peel the peaches and slice them in half removing the bone and then cut in thin slices. After peeling the oranges and taken the bones out, cut into small pieces, do the same with the lemon.

Put all fruit in a bowl with sugar and brandy and leave to marinate for about 12 minutes. Then add the red wine, a glass of orange juice and lemon.

Later, add the cinnamon and the lemon peel and let it chill in the fridge. This drink should served very cold.

And that’s it! Oh wait…

A few tips:

Before consuming the Sangria, at the last moment without abusing add ice cubes. Especially don’t abuse.

You can also add a small bottle of lemon or orange soda too if you want to decrease the alcohol.

To make the perfect sangria you need to get Tempranillos. Or young red wine, if you can, with tones of fruit!

You can add other fruit to the mix if you like, like pears! Or whatever you want.

And that’s it!

I’ll see you all soon,

Matt

    Wine and brandy together? I must try this!

    • mattrecepies says:

      Very little brandy, just to give it a twist. A friend of mine instead of brandy puts peach liquor. Or you can put both, but then it’s not going to be Sangria anymore ;) it will be your variant! That maybe is even better

    Brilliant! My roommate is allergic to melons and any fruit with a pit in it (so no peaches) anything you’d recommend to replace it?

    • mattrecepies says:

      What is he exactly allergic too?

      If it’s only the taste, you can take out the fruits. If not, add citrus fruits instead. Or is he allergic to that too? You can try to do it with white wine instead of tinto.
