Sangria (Red & White)

September 5, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Team @thirtysanchez missed qualifying for the Great Urban Race’s national championships by just 4 minutes. Next year!

There’s been a lot of eating and drinking over the last month, but also a lot of travel & activity which means less time and energy for documentation. In forthcoming posts, there’s zuchini & tomato rice casserole, tacos al pastor (where I finally muster up the courage to spiral-cut pineapple like my dad always did), peach salsa, mixed berry jam and most likely a lot of Southern-inspired dishes since we just returned from Charleston.

But first, sangria, because that’s what you do when you have a lot of cheap wine leftover from an event, fruit is good and it is hot (okay, warm) in SF. I don’t like my sangria too sweet so if you do, you may want to use a sweeter wine or add more sugar to your concoction.

White wine sangria

White Wine Sangria (adapted from Food Network recipe)

  • 1 bottle white wine (I had sauvignon blanc)
  • 1/4 cup white rum
  • 12 oz. ginger beer or lemon-lime soda
  • 1 sliced lime
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • frozen strawberries (or any other fruit used as ice cubes)

Mix it all together and chill. Garnish with whatever fruit you want. I once had an amazing white wine sangria spiked with lychees. I also used frozen fruit as ice cubes.

Red wine sangria

Red Wine Sangria (adapted from Recipe Girl)

  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 1/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 2 oranges (1 sliced, 1 juiced)
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • 1 sliced green apple
  • between 1/8 and 1/4 cup white sugar

Lightly muddle citrus slices and sugar until sugar dissolves. Stir in orange juice, Triple Sec and wine. Chill and serve over ice or frozen fruit.
