Oregon summer is sangria time! I make this every year to rave reviews. The secret is brandy instead of vodka!
Red Wine Sangria
2 cups sliced fruit (I use: lemon, lime, orange, strawberries)
3 tablespoons Sugar
1 cup Brandy
2 bottles Red Wine
(I prefer a mid priced brand preferably from the Willamette Valley)
4 cups Ice cubes
Place the fruit, sugar and brandy in a 2-3 quart container. Refrigerate overnight.
To serve, add the wine and stir to combine. Add the ice! Serve very cold.
This drink is pretty strong, I serve it in an 8oz cup. Any bigger and the drink gets warm before your guest is finished.
