Mexican Sangria

Sangria is a fabulous, wonderful drink.  I love it.  This is one of my favorite recipes.  It is a little sweeter and packs a little more punch.  Everyone love it.

See?  And my sister’s wine glasses were the bomb, because they are bigger, so you could get more fruit in her glasses.  I take back everything I ever said against large wine glasses.

Mexican Sangria

This recipe is from my friend Leslie.

Ingredients:

  • 2 bottles (1500mL) of red wine (Spanish wine is best; we used Vina Borgia: Garmacha 2010)
  • 1 cup brandy (we used apple brandy)
  • 2 cups Triple Sec
  • 2 cups orange juice
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and cut into wedges
  • 1 pear, cored and cut into wedges
  • 1/2 pineapple, cubed
  • 2-4 cups of lemon lime soda

Directions:

1. Mix the wine, Brandy, Triple Sec, orange juice, and fruit in a large container or glass pitcher.  Cover and place in refrigerator for at least 2 hours; letting it chill overnight is best.

2. Wait until you are ready to serve the sangria before adding the soda.  Serve with ice if desired.
