Whether or not spring has made its appearance where you are, I can give you at least one excuse to prepare a big batch of this delicious sangria, Cinco de Mayo! Make a big pitcher of this red wine sangria, invite over some friends, set out finger food (appetizers) and it’s a party!
Here are just a few menu ideas, which can be customized depending on your preference
• {Appetizer} Chips, Salsa + Guacamole
• {Main} Enchiladas, tacos or burritos
• {Kids} Nachos or quesadillas
• {Dessert} Mexican Brownies or Churros
Red Wine Sangria {Recipe adapted from Bobby Flay}
2 bottle of dry red wine
1 cup brandy
1/2 cup triple sec
1 cup orange juice
1 cup pomegranate juice
1/2 cup simple syrup (equal parts sugar & water, heated until sugar dissolves and cooled)
1 orange, sliced – I used a blood orange
1 apple, sliced – recommend Fuji or Honeycrisp
1 cup blackberries (OR blueberries, strawberries, raspberries)
Pomegranate seeds – optional
In a large container or pitcher, mix all the ingredients together, seal it and let it stand for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator before serving.
Cheers + Happy Cinco de Mayo!
