Thirsty Thursday-Red Wine Sangria

3 Mar

This was the first time I’ve actually made sangria. Last weekend I made it as the “starter” for my wine club pals. It was a hit! So, I’ll share it with you!

THINK AHEAD: make about several hours ahead so the fruit can absorb the wine-y goodness.

Ingredients:
2 bottles red wine (I used a magnum)
1/2 c brandy
1/2 c triple sec
1 c light orange juice
2 oranges, sliced thin
2 apples, sliced thin
2 lemons, sliced thin
1 c water (you can skip the simple syrup all together)

Mixing it up:
Slice the fruit, place in the bottom of a 2 quart pitchure, pour in all the liquid, mix and chill for at least 2 hours before serving. Serve in wine glasses. Make sure to put some fruit in each glass. Add ice if needed.
Cheers friends!

This serves at least 12 people for under 200 calories a serving.
