There’s nothing more enjoyable on a warm day than a chilled red sangria that’s sweet and fruity.
Try to pick a wine that you would enjoy drinking on its own. I prefer using Zinfandel or Rioja for their big full-bodied flavor. That said, don’t spend a fortune on the wine as you’re really going for the big picture here, not the subtle nuances in the wine.
I prefer my sangria on the sweeter side (I’m a pastry chef after all :)), but if sweet isn’t your thing, just cut down on the sugar to your liking.
While this red sangria is delicious on a warm summer day, it’s a refreshing beverage you can enjoy any season. I know I do!
Delicious Red Sangria
- Place the red wine in the refrigerator to chill. Wash and pat dry all of the fruit. Hull the strawberries and slice into quarters. Slice the peach, apple and orange into small cubes and pieces. Add the cut fruit including the grapes and blueberries to a large bowl. Sprinkle with sugar and toss to coat. Let the fruit marinate for 10 minutes. Pour the red wine over the fruit. Stir and enjoy!
