Sangria Red Wine

Sangria Red Wine

Red wine sangria is a fruity and fun way to serve wine at a party or just to swallow it on a hot summer day.

We can thank Spain for bringing us the red wine from Sangria. Although they are mainly consumed by tourists, they deserve praise for the invention of the sangria.

That’s the best grown-up punch you can take. It’s sweet, fruity and drunk. With a few simple ingredients you can prepare a jug of sangria that you can enjoy.

What’s in Sangria?

It should be noted that sangria can be made from red, white or rosé wine. There’s no rule that you have to do it in red.

Whatever you need:

  • A jug big enough for a bottle of wine and a piece of fruit.
  • A bottle of wine, preferably something fruity with a low tannin content.
  • Fresh fruit (citrus fruits are most effective – oranges, lemons, limes, apples)
  • A sweetener like sugar, maple syrup or my favorite, agave syrup.
  • Brandy? (It’s not necessary, but I mean, why not?)

Which wine should I use for sangria?

It is not important to buy an expensive bottle of sangria wine. The aromas are somewhat masked by the fruit and cognac, so that a cheaper bottle is sufficient. Don’t waste your best wine on that.

I usually use Spanish red to make sangria. That’s fine. In Spain they had used red table wine that was new and not yet ripe. And in Spain this table wine costs only 1 or 2 euros per bottle. I wish we were here!

Unfortunately no, but you can still buy red wine from Spain, such as Rioja or Tempranillo from another region, for less than $10. If you can find Rioja, go to joven or crianza (which means how young they are). They are cheaper and contain less tannins for the production of sangria binder or chalk.

If you can’t find Rioja or Tempranillo, you can add a Pinot Noir Garnache or even a Zinfandel or Primitivo to your selection.

The wines you do not want to use are aged wines with a high tannin content, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Bordeaux or Burgundy.

How to prepare red wine sangria

To make sangria, you have to start by crushing the fruit.

There are two schools of thought on this subject. You can leave the fruit on larger pieces that remain in the jar when you pour it, or cut it into small cubes that you can fill and eat in the glass.

I prefer small pieces that can be poured into the glass. So I break the apples into small pieces and slice them into oranges, then a quarter into slices. When I add pomegranates, I like to cut them 1 to 2 centimetres instead of removing all the seeds. Leave the lemon or lime in the large slices, as they are not consumed.

Did you hear about the sauce? You deliver your alcohol order online with a 2-hour or 2-day delivery to 20 major cities in the United States. You have a big choice. No minimum quantities and free delivery!

Put all the fruit in the jar. Pour the wine, brandy and sugar. Stir it all up. Then leave to cool for a few hours to allow the flavours to mix and the fruit to mix.

That’s all there is! Thank you very much.
