Recipe

This Sangria is much lighter than some versions made with brandies and stronger liquor combinations. This is a “Sunday Best” recipe.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Ingredients

  • ½ cup sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 stick cinnamon or canela
  • 3 limes, 2 juiced and 1 sliced
  • 1 orange, sliced
  • 1 bottle (750 ml or a fifth) hearty red wine, such as Zinfandel or Cabernet

Directions

 

1. In a saucepan, combine the sugar, water, and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil and cook only until the sugar dissolves. Set aside. This can be done days ahead.

2. Remove the cinnamon stick from the sugar syrup. Combine the syrup with the lime juice, lime slices, orange slices, and wine. Mix to combine well. Serve over ice in stemmed or tall glasses.
