This red wine sangria is crazy-good! Quick and easy to mix up. Plan on making a double batch because this sangria is always the hit of the party.
Ingredients
  • 1 750ml bottle Garnacha Wine
  • ½ cup Blackberry brandy
  • ¼ cup Triple sec
  • ½ cup orange juice
  • 1 Orange, thinly sliced
  • 1 Lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 Lime, thinly sliced
  • 1 Granny smith apple, chopped small pieces
  • ¼ cup simple syrup (optional)*
Instructions
  1. Place sliced fruit in pitcher
  2. Pour wine, brandy, orange liqueur and orange juice over fruit
  3. Mash up slightly with wooden spoon
  4. Add simple syrup, if using
  5. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to overnight. Flavors develop the more it sits. (I can never wait this long and it ALWAYS tastes amazing after just a few hours)
  6. Serve chilled with some pieces of sliced fruit.
  7. Enjoy!
Notes
* To make simple syrup, bring 1 cup of cold water and ½ cup of sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Once boiling,turn heat to low and stir constantly until the sugar dissolves completely and the mixture is clear, about 3 to 5 minutes.

**I personally do not add the simple syrup because I think the sangria is sweet enough on it's own but some people like it super sweet and add this simple syrup is the key to sweetening things up without having to deal with undissolved sugar settling in the bottom of the pitcher.
