My roommate is from Spain and knows how to make some mean sangria. There are many ways to make it, but her version is the best I’ve tasted thus far.
Maria’s sangria (and Jaime)
-Chopped fruit; apples, pears, peaches (whatever you want)
-Rum (or whichever liquor you want, gin works)
-Juice of 3 oranges
-Juice of 3 lemons
-1/4 C orange and lemon zest
-Sprite or 7up
I wish I had portions to suggest, but I guess you’ll have to taste test at every rum-sugar-filled step of the recipe. Sorry. Throw sugar, rum, orange/lemon juice, orange/lemon zest and cinnamon on chopped fruit. After mixing and tasting, add red wine and Sprite. Chill and add ice as needed.
