Red Wine Sangria


I know that it sounds terrible to say, especially with such good quality wines being produced in Portugal, but this is the only way I drink red wine - in sangria! I also know at least half a dozen different ways to make sangria, but this is the one that always works out perfectly and that everyone loves. Ideal for a long summer evening spent amongst friends, playing board games and in a talking shop!


Ingredients:

  •  250 ml red wine
  •  250 ml Seven Up
  •  250 ml carbonated orange juice (I used Sumol)
  •  2 cinnamon sticks
  •  1 orange
  •  1 grapefruit
  •  1 lemon
  •  2 limes
  •  1 apple
  •   mint leaves

Pour
the wine, the orange juice and the Seven up into a large jug . Mix everything very well. Wash the fruit and cut it into pieces. Add it to the liquid ingredients and then add two cinnamon sticks and mint leaves to flavor the drink. Cover and let steep in the refrigerator for two hours before serving in high glasses. Put lots of ice cubes.




Bem sei que até parece mal dizê-lo, sobretudo com vinhos de tão boa qualidade a serem produzidos em Portugal, mas esta é a única maneira de eu beber vinho tinto - em sangria! Também conheço pelo menos meia dúzia de maneiras diferentes de se fazer sangria, mas esta é que me resulta sempre bem e que toda a gente adora que eu faça.Ideal para uma longa noite de verão passada entre amigos, a jogar jogos de tabuleiro e numa amena cavaqueira!


Ingredientes:
  • 250 ml vinho tinto
  • 250 ml Seven Up
  • 250 ml sumo de laranja gaseificado (usei Sumol)
  • 2 paus de canela
  • 1 laranja
  • 1 toranja
  • 1 limão
  • 2 limas
  • 1 maçã
  • folhas de hortelã

Deite num jarro grande o vinho, a Seven up e a laranjada. Misture tudo muito bem. Lave muito bem a fruta e corte-a em pedacinhos. Adicione aos líquidos e juntes dois paus de canela e folhas de hortelã para aromatizar a bebida. Tape e deixe de infusão no frigorífico durante duas horas antes de servir em copos altos.Coloque bastantes pedras de gelo.

  1. Eu também só bebo vinho tinto assim mas sinceramente prefiro sangria feita com vinho branco :)

  2. This sounds fabulous. In Mexico, my friends made me a sangria that was 1/3 red wine, 1/3 vodka, and 1/3 agua limon. Also very good, but not as elegant (or tasty!) as your recipe.
