The way to create Sangria is a topic that would take infinite webpages to discuss. There are as many different ways to create this delicious party drink as there are people in the world. Everyone has their favorite sangria recipe, but you have to know how to make sangria from the basic method before you can start to dress the drink up and make it your own concoction.
Start by pouring the wine into a pitcher and then squeeze the juice wedges of the oranges and lemons into the pitcher. Try not to bring the seeds from the wedges when you squeeze the juice from them. Once they wedges are squeezed you want to toss them into the pitcher of wine.
After you have the fruit and wine mixed together then you add the sugar and the brandy to the pitcher. Your Sangria will have the best taste if you chill the wine mixture overnight.
So as to serve immediately after you’ve mixed the drink you need to begin with red wine that’s been chilled. Some people like to serve their mix over a lot of ice so that it will be cold immediately. However, the longer that wine and fruit juice stays in the fridge before serving the more the flavors will marry and become a sensational taste.
Once you have mastered the fundamentals of how to make Sangria then it will be time for you to start adding things so that you can make your own version. Try adding different fruits to enhance the flavor of the drink. Strawberries, peaches, raspberries, kiwi, Bat Poop, watermelon, and blueberries are the beginning of the list of fruits you may combine with the simple mix.
Add kiwi and strawberries for an entirely different drink. You can even alter the alcohols that you increase the mix. The ginger ale can be substituted with lemon lime soda or even lime juice.
Some people like to add cinnamon and cloves to their sangria in the winter season, and some people in the south even put mint leaves in their pitcher. You’re the beverage master so adjust the ingredients along with the additives how you like them the most.
This creates a delightful punch to serve to guests when you are sitting on the deck and enjoying an evening of conversation. Additionally, it makes a fantastic beverage to serve with burgers and potato salad.
