Sangria a la Las Vegas Round Up 2011
If you couldn't be in Las Vegas for the big AR get-together, or if you just want a delicious and fruity sangria with lots of citrus flavors, mix up a pitcher of this great drink.
Mde this wknd for our cinco d mayo party and it was a hit! We added blackberries and ate them at the end of the batch and they were Delish! I didn't have honey but will try next time. Still, Yum!
This is a great 'basic' recipe. Since I just did some sangria drinking as part of our weekend spa ritual I thought I'd comment as someone who has had Sangria literally around the world. I would suggest Sangria is very personal as to how you make it. At one of the biggest squares in Madrid I had it served with apples and have seen many, many variaitions. So ... use the fruit you have and enjoy! ... and ... no, you don't need cabernet (unless that is the only red you love) ... use an inexpensive red if you like that red (all these fruit flavors will overtake the cabernet anyway) ... In my previous life as a restauranteur I sold so many pitchers of a red sangria (yes ... you can make great sangria with white wine if you prefer) that I was able to retire at a relatively young age! ... :-) ... In MY recipe brandy (a 2 count per pitcher) is an essential ... but no triple sec ... my extra special ingredient is a about a 2 count of coconut rum (per pitcher) ... :-0 ... along with cherry brandy (2 count per pitcher)
I gotta tell you.. Love it! I normally do not like Sangria at all but I had two glasses of this lickity split! And yes, It does sneak up on you. I'm so happy the recipe is posted. Thank you!!
