Author Notes

Sangria is very much a not-recipe kind of drink -- throw things together, let them mingle, drink -- but if you need a bit more of a guide, here it is! You're free to use whatever fruit your heart desires. —Kenzi Wilbur

What You'll Need
  • 1 bottle of mid-range red wine
  • 1/2 cup liquor (I like a mix of brandy and orange liqueur, like Triple sec -- and you're welcome to use a bit more than 1/2 cup)
  • 2 peaches, sliced (or swap for something seasonal)
  • 1/2 cup strawberries, sliced (or swap for something seasonal)
  • 1 lemon, scrubbed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, or to taste (optional)
  • Sparkling water
  1. Mix the wine with the liquor, add fruit and lemon slices, and add sugar to taste. (Or leave it out entirely.) Put in the fridge for up to a day and at least a few hours.
  2. Fill glasses with ice, add sangria (making sure to get a piece or two of fruit in each glass), and top off with sparkling water.

The carafe is the Alba carafe by Roost. You can purchase it from Seven Colonial. They are wonderful to work with.

May I know put the wine and fruits in 'what' in the fridge? Carafe or pot? Cover or don't have to cover?
Kenzi W. January 5, 2014
I'd cover, and you can put it in whatever you have!

Yesterdays comment must have gotten lost, but the sangria is superb. But, why isn't that carafe sold in Provisions?
Kenzi W. August 28, 2013
