  • I can’t stand it! One time I made the best sangria ever. Ever! And I had to give it away. Made in an instant moment of genius, one of those Mam, we were supposed to make something but eh it didn’t work out. It’s supposed to be food or drink. We’re Spain and eh we need it tonight.
    Made Sangria, they took it to the sale and the word got out, all parents/teachers came back for seconds….
    And I can’t remember what I did! It’s not so much the ingredients but the proportions.. sigh

    Our recipe for sangria:

    • 1 litre dry red wine
    • 1 orange
    • 1/2 lemon
    • 1 lime
    • 350 ml club soda
    • 5-6 strawberries, chopped and sugared
    • 1 – 2 Tbsp sugar


    1. 1. Slice some of the fruit before juicing (these can act as a garnish).
    2. 2. Mix sugar, wine and all the juices and fruit together. Refrigerate.
    3. 3. Just before serving add the soda water (this ensures that the soda will remain fizzy). Add some ice. Serve as cold as possible.

    As different seasonal fruits become available use them instead. Peaches. Apricots etc.

    We were amazed that those few strawberries add so much flavour!

    Thanks for making us write it down, Karen. I hate that when we make something that’s great and think we’ll remember.
