Spanish Sangria! A medium-bodied wine with a whole lot of personality,
This drink works well in the summer time when entertaining friends or family. very simple to make and if done right its is delicious. if you decide to make it in the winter time just use some fruit that is in season. as always, keep your drinks cold and your lines tight
1 Liter of red wine
2 oranges (juice )
4 peaches, cut into small pieces
5 desert spoons sugar
2 pieces of lemon skin
Steps: 1. Sangria is a refreshing drink and you don't need to use a vintage wine. We recommend a reasonably priced wine from Jumilla, Alic ante or Valencia..... Put the wine into a jug, add the sugar, and stir until it is properly dissolved. 2: Squeeze the two oranges, and add the juice to the jug. Save a slice of orange skin to decorate. 3: Wash the peaches, peel them and cut them into small quarters (e.g. six per peach). Add them to the jug. If it is not Summer, you can use any other in-season fruit. 4: Put the jug into the fridge. Sangria should always be served chilled. If you want to reduce the alcohol concentration, add ice cubes and slices of lemon. If you want to increase the alcohol add a small amount of cognac or rum.
