SUMMER DRINK SERIES // Red Sangria
I've been contemplating starting a wine series for a while now because I'm always on the hunt for yummy reds!
RECIPE: inspired by Bobby Flay's Red Wine Sangria Recipe, but tweeked for my own tastebuds!
2 bottles of full body Red Wine (I like Cabernet Sauvignon OR Merlot)
1 cup Brandy
1/2 cup Triple Sec
1 cup Orange Juice
1 cup Cranberry Juice
1/2 cup Simple Syrup (equal parts water + sugar)
Lots & Lots of Cinnamon Sticks
Fresh Fruits of your choice:
1. Mix it all together
2. Add Ice
3. Let it sit as long as you can wait until your first sip!
(tastes the best after 24 h though)
