Named after the the Spanish word ‘bleeding’ this world famous beverage has been in existence over 2000 years. By the early 18th century, Sangria has spread to Latin America. After it was showcased in 1964 World’s fair in New York, it became a widely consumed drink in America.
There are various recipes that exist today for Sangria, but lets face it, we cant just have ‘any’ Sangria. It must have the right blend of fruits and alcohol, above all it must be served chilled ! Whether its a hot summer afternoon or an evening with friends, Sangria is something that almost always goes with any type of palette and gives you a ‘refreshing kick’!
One of the recipes that work well is to chill the red wine (not a dry wine) overnight soaked with some pomegranates then 2 hours prior to serving add Apples or any other fruits of choice along with 50-100 ml of Cointreau (per 750ml wine) , orange juice (200 ml per 750ml wine), lemon (1 whole) and some sugar to taste.
