One of my favorite summertime adult drinks is sangria and my husband makes a good one! Here is what you’ll need:
- Red wine (Lambrusco is good here but any will do)
- Triple sec
- Cinnamon stick
- Seltzer water or club soda
Pour the bottle of wine in a large pitcher or half gallon mason jar. Add 1 oz brandy. (We were out of brandy so he substituted rum. He’s a big fan of the rum.) Then add 1 oz triple sec which adds a little citrus flavor and sweetness. It will not be quite sweet enough so add sugar (dissolved in a little water), agave nectar or xylitol/stevia blend (I make my own here). Chop the fruit and add it to the jar. You can use peaches, apples, oranges, strawberries. I had some starfruit from my sister-in-law’s tree and I was out of strawberries and oranges so I substituted. Add the cinnamon stick.
