As temperatures continue to rise and the sun spends more time showing its face, my thoughts oftentimes touch on sangria, and how nice it would be to have a glass (or pitcher) in front of me.
Just this week we got in a brand new sangria pitcher, straight from Spain. It’s made of ceramic and hand-painted in Valencia, and makes the perfect vessel for your wine and fruit concoctions. The best part? It holds 1.75 liters so you’ll have plenty of sangria handy for a balmy afternoon.
Sangria – Enjoy with Caution – makes 6 glasses
1 gal dry red wine
3 oranges, sliced
4 oranges, squeezed
1 lemon, sliced
½ lemon, squeezed
2 limes, sliced
2 limes, squeezed
2 tbsp fine sugar
¼ c cointreau
1 c brandy (or more)
Strawberries, raspberries, mango or whatever else you’d like, sliced to add
Mix all together in a pitcher and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Serve chilled or room temperature, whichever you prefer.
