Sangria

This recipe dates back to the summer- but it was damn good.  A weekend with all your friends… make friday night- let it sit in the fridge over night- and day drink on saturday.  Ah, summer is feeling particularly far away today…. but stay tuned and perhaps i’ll make a winter mulled wine version.

A Bobby Flay Recipe

3/4 cup simple syrup, equal parts sugar and water
2 bottles red wine [we used a boxed wine- called  From the  Tank]
3/4 cup brandy
1/2 cup triple sec
3/4 cup orange juice
2 oranges, sliced into thin round
2 green apples, cored and sliced thin
2 lemons, sliced into thin rounds

Boil water + pour over sugar to dissolve. Cool. Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher and refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or up to 2 days. Serve over ice.

    This was hands-down the best sangria I’ve ever had and I’ve been dreaming about it ever since.

    That said, I am looking forward to a good mulled wine or cider recipe from Tessa in the near future…
