Red Wine Sangria

Red Wine Sangria

Ever since I visited Barcelona this summer I've promised some of you to share a traditional recipe for red wine Sangria. As you know Sangria is one of the most popular drinks in Spain. There is nothing better in a hot summer day than take a moment of respite and enjoy a cold Sangria over ice in the company of your beloved friends.

 

Sangria is the kind of drink perfect for parties, family gatherings as it is quick, easy to prepare and can be made a day in advance.

 

All you need is a dry red wine, some fruits, your favorite brandy or liqueur and some sparkling water. Simple as that. In no more than 10 minutes this beautiful, colorful cocktail is done. The only thing is that is better to let it chill for at least 4 hours and even better overnight so the flavors combine, all the juices from fruits adding sweetness and aroma to the red wine. 

 

I was quite excited about this recipe as it is very similar in taste and look like the ones served in Spain. Though Sangria is it often served during summer this is definitely a recipe worth making all year-round.
