During the hot summer months, you’ll be hard put to find a beverage more refreshing than Sangria. A few weeks ago I made a batch using an inexpensive red wine and it has become so popular around our household, I have been keeping a pitcher in the refrigerator ever since.
I think you will like this recipe too because it is quick and easy as well as light on the pocketbook. Try it and let me know what you think.
EASY and INEXPENSIVE SANGRIA
2 Liter Paisano
1/2 c Sugar
1 Liter Ginger Ale
Pour Paisano (or any red wine) into a pitcher and stir in sugar*. Add Ginger Ale and stir gently.
Slice fruit very thinly** and add (all except the apple core) to the liquid.
Stir and chill thoroughly.
Enjoy! It’s that easy.
* I discovered it is better to add the sugar before mixing in the Ginger Ale because if you add the Ginger Ale first and then the sugar, the mixture will bubble up and make a mess all over your counter.
** For slicing I use a Mandolin. I really like using the one I have made by OXO which allows many options for slicing, dicing, and julienne with an easily adjustable setting for thickness.
