Preparation time: 5 minutes of mixing, 6 hours of chilling
Tired of that boring old fermented grape extract you call wine? Well here's to something to make your taste buds crave for more: sangria!
Sangria. It's wine, only 20% better!
Make it as your go-to drink when you’re expecting more than eight people to a cocktail party. It's quite easy to make as they do with punch. Plus, its fruity taste makes it a hit in almost any party—from a summer backyard BBQ to a bachelorette party to a kickass wedding on a zombie apocalypse night! Remember, the trick to making good sangria is to use the freshest fruits and the best alcohol.
- Mix together the brandy, juices, dry wine, triple sec or peach schnapps. Add the sliced lemon and orange, plus the cherries. Taste the mixture, and add the ¼ cup sugar if you wish to make it sweeter.
- Refrigerate for at least six hours to get the best flavor.
- Pour some club soda or ginger ale (for a sweeter finish) before serving. This gives your drink a bit of fizz.
