Sangria is a very popular drink here in Spain. It has a light fruity taste and is great to drink during the day, with a meal and at parties.
There are 2 types of Sangria, red and white. Red is the most popular.
Here is our recipe at Charley's Bar.
Half fill a 1 litre jug with ice
Add chopped or sliced fruit: Orange, Lemon, and Apple
Add a tablespoon of sugar
Now for the booze:
Add 3 long dashes of Bacardi, Cointreau and Brandy
Half or 3/4 fill the jug with Red Wine
Add a long dash of Orange Juice
Top with either La Casera, Lemonade, Sprite or 7 up
Give it a good stir and serve.
For white sangria replace the red wine with white wine and leave out the orange juice.
Some people recommend you chill it overnight.
I recommend that you drink it straight away.
