Spanish Sangria

Sangria is definitely a classic and refreshing summer drink. When I was hanging out with my dig friends in Zorita de los Canes in Spain we often made and drank sangria on our inn’s rooftop in the evenings after a hot day’s work. Below I thought I would include a classic Spanish (red or white) sangria recipe which is easy to make and tastes amazing!

Prep time: 10-15 minutes

Additional time: 2 hours sitting in the fridge (the longer it sits in the fridge… the better!)

Servings: 6

Ingredient List

  • 2 Limes
  • 3 Oranges
  • 1 and 1/4 cups of rum of your choice
  • 1/4 white sugar
  • 1 bottle of dry red wine (e.g.: Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon) if making red sangria or 1 bottle of dry white wine (e.g.:Pino Grigio or Sauvignon blanc) if making white sangria.
  • Additional fruit of your choice sliced (e.g.: peach, nectarines, mango) or berries (blueberries, strawberries).

What else you will need:

  • Pitcher
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Large wooden spoon

Instructions

  1. Slice lemon, one lime and one orange into thin rounds and place into pitcher.
