Summer Sangria

Summer is right around the corner. That means hot sunny days and cold sips. One of my favorite summer sips is Sangria.
I received this recipe many years ago from a friend who had just returned from a trip to Spain. She made this drink one sunny afternoon at a get together and I instantly fell in love with it. I just had to have the recipe!

I have since made this at many summer gatherings of my own and it is always a hit! Cheers to summer!


Summer Sangria

  • 1/2 lemon, sliced
  • 1/2 orange, sliced
  • 1/2 apple, diced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 bottle red wine, preferably Spanish red like Rioja or Tempranillo
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • club soda

In a large pitcher combine all ingredients except club soda. Chill for at least 1 hour. For maximum flavor a like to make this a day ahead and let the flavors mingle overnight. When ready to serve, pour chilled sangria into glass and top with a splash of club soda, stir to combine.
