Great Sangria Recipe

July 11th, 2011

My NASCAR Sangria Wines

Thought I’d share what wines I used to make my “NASCAR Sangria” and the recipe.  “Down Under” Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is a South Eastern Australian wine, Turning Leaf Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 is a California, Brazin Zinfandel Lodi 2008 is also a California, and Apaltagua Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 is grown on the Apalta Valley Estate in Colchagua, Chile.  All four wines blended well with the other ingredients below and ended up getting mixed together between my three pitchers.  Here’s my recipe:  4 – bottles of red wine; 4 – sliced oranges without peel; 2 – sliced limes without peel; 2 – sliced mangos without peel (of course!); 8 oz – Triple Sec; 8 oz – Brandy; and 1/2 cup sugar or to taste.  Stir together and place in frig for hour or so to chill-up.  Place ice cubes in glass, pour in about 4 oz of lemon-lime soda, top with sangria liquid, then scoop out some fruit and place on top. I suggest drinking with a straw, so the ice and fruit don’t wind-up on your cute summer top! Enjoy!
