My husband and I were supposed to go on a long weekend to Barcelona recently, however due to the lockdown of most countries during the Coronavirus outbreak, we had to stay at home instead. As we couldn’t go to Spain, we decided to bring a bit of Spain to us, by making our own Sangria. I’d never had it before, and I was a little bit apprehensive about it because I don’t somehow think red wine works as a cold drink. I’m so glad we made it though, as it was amazing! I’ve already made it again since the first time, that’s how much I liked it.
Makes 2 servings
~1/2 bottle of fruity red Rioja (or Pinot Noir or Grenache)
1 tbsp syrup
1 slice of pineapple
ice cubes for serving
1. Peel and cut the kiwi in smallish pieces. Finely chop the pineapple and cut the strawberries in quarters. Slice the lemon. Place in the serving jug.
2. Cut the orange in half. Squeeze the juice out of one half, and slice the other half, and add the juice and the slices to the other fruits.
3. Pour the wine in, followed by the brandy and syrup, and stir well.
4. Put some ice in the serving glasses, and fill with the liquid and fruit.
