During this record breaking summer, there are a few things that can help keep you cool. I’d like to offer my personal favorite: a light, fruity, refreshing beverage known as sangria. I got this recipe straight from Spain, courtesy of a world-traveler friend so you know it has to be good!

Ingredients

  • Half a bottle of wine (white or red)
  • 2oz of Vodka
  • 2 liter of Sprite or 7-up
  • 1/2 spoon full of sugar
  • Add whatever fruit you want (oranges, apples, pears and lemons)
  • 2oz of Vermouth (optional)

Start by chopping your fruit into small bite-size pieces and set aside. You’ll need about 2 cups of fruit total.

Pour half a bottle of wine into a pitcher, in this instance I chose red wine but white is just as delicious.

Next, add your vodka and vermouth (if you’re using it), I, personally prefer vermouth-free sangria.

Add your chopped fruit to the pitcher.

Then add your 1/2 spoonful of sugar – it really does help the medicine go down.

Fill the rest of the pitcher with the sprite, stir and refrigerate. Make sure you give your sangria enough time to chill and soak the fruit (1-2 hours).

Hope this helps keep you cool this weekend!

  1. Haha – actually they use lemon fanta but I've never been able to find it here in the states in more than just a can. Also, started making this with a whole bottle of wine instead of 1/2 and it's WAY better 🙂
