So how do you make the Perfect sangria? Check out the recipe below!
Ingredients You Will Need:
– 2 bottles sweet wine (such as Chenin Blanc or Riesling)
-250 ml Lemon Juice
-3 cups Simple Syrup
-Ripe peaches, apples, grapes, and grapefruit (diced)
-Sliced oranges (laterally sliced and thin for garnish)
Combine two bottles of sweet wine with 250mL of lemon juice and three cups of simple syrup. Make sure to whisk the syrup in so it will blend with the juice base. Add the diced fruit and let sit for up to an hour, the longer the better. Also, the riper the fruit the better transfer of flavor to your sangria. If the fruit is not ripe it may remain hard and less flavorful which will result in a bland sangria.
When you are ready to serve this delicious summer sangria, add one bottle of your preferred dry champagne.
