Lisa says:

Wow, I love that picture you took! By the way, make sure people know I doubled the recipe shown below.

1 orange
1 lemon
1 lime
1/4 cup sugar
1 750-ml bottle chilled red wine
2 cups orange juice
1/4 cup triple sec
1/4 cup brandy

Slice the fruit, then mash at the bottom with the sugar. Add the wine, orange juice, triple sec, and brandy, and chill. Serve over ice, and garnish with additional fruit.

Makes 5 1/2 cups

    SERIOUSLY unfair to post this delicious-looking sangria when I CAN’T HAVE ANY!!!

    Ask Lisa to tell you how well painting a bedroom works when you’ve had a pitcher of sangria and it’s 2am. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Hi Bob —

    Any light or medium-bodied red wine would be fine, a Rioja would be ideal… don’t feel like you have to buy an expensive bottle!

    Sangria is very popular in Portugal and Spain.

    The way I do it, I use the cheapest red wine avaible at the supermarket, fruit (orange) and a little Soda.

    There are white wine, beer and champagne variations, but red wine sangria is great.

    Some lessons I can share:
    never add bananas
    always serve fresh
    whiskey is fine, but very very little (less then a finger)

    Drink with friends and
    have fun ๐Ÿ™‚

    This Sangria was a big hit at my birthday party, that I had to make extra batches, so people could take it home!
