Sangria is a tasty wine punch with a long history in Spain and Portugal, which then spread through the Spanish empire in Latin America. In recent years, Sangria has become a popular drink in many countries. It is easy to make Sangria, and there are many recipe variations. The kind and amount of fruits added varies. There is no such thing as a traditional Sangria recipe, as even in Spain there are different concoctions. As red wine is inexpensive in Spain, it is considered the base ingredient.
Mix a bottle of Spanish red wine with the same amount of Sprite or similar lemon drink, then add a glass of either whisky or brandy, then a peach, an apple and an orange, add about 5 to 10 ounces of sugar with a sprinkle of cinnamon. This recipe comes close to a traditional Spanish Sangria.
A super-fruity recipe uses a bottle of white wine, two shots of berry-flavored brandy, two cups ginger ale, a half-cup each of sugar and lemonade, a cup of sliced strawberries, one each lemon, lime, peach and orange cut into wedges.
This blend is left to chill overnight, except ginger ale, which is added with ice before serving.
