This Summer entertain with our incredible Summertime Sangria. People ask me all the time to share our recipe for sangria. It is probably one of our most requested and refreshing drinks – a perfect pairing with a plate of paella, or even served with munchies like cured black olives, Manchego cheese, and Marcona almonds.
- 2 bottles merlot or cabernet sauvignon
- 1 cup brandy or cognac
- 1 cup simple syrup (1 cup sugar with 1 cup water – stir only to mix in sugar, boil until sugar is dissolved, let cool)
- ¾ cup Grand Marnier
- 1 cup fresh navel orange juice (always fresh juice)
Sliced navel oranges, limes, lemons, green apples, pears, peaches, green grapes, strawberries. Whole blackberries, blueberries, fresh mint.
