Sangria is an alcoholic drink typical of the Spanish tradition and it is known all over the world. It is served during lunches and dinners, but also as an aperitif and for theme parties, according to the original recipe it is made with seasonal fruit and red wine but the variations are endless. Among the most famous variations, there is the white Catalan sangria created instead with sparkling wines and white wines. With an intense and warm but fresh and refreshing taste, it is easy to prepare at home, following some small tips and above all respecting the doses indicated by the original Iberian recipe.
Pour the orange juice into a bowl and add a cinnamon stick. Wash and peel two peaches and cut them into small pieces. Add them to the orange juice with an orange and an apple cut into cubes. Pour the brandy and add the brown sugar and red wine.
Leave everything to rest in the refrigerator for at least five hours and serve your alcoholic beverage with a few ice cubes, perhaps in a large, beautiful jug in order to collect wine and fruit together. Drink with various snacks, with fruit skewers or with a nice paella to recreate a perfect Spanish atmosphere in your home.
You can replace the peaches with winter melon, kiwi, oranges or pears: the important thing is to choose seasonal fruit, ripe but firm, in order to use also the peel. As an alternative to brandy, you can pour a glass of rum.
It is necessary that its ingredients macerate as much time as possible to make it tastier. You can also add 500 ml of soda or lemon-flavored carbonated drink just before serving.
