Sangria Sunshine

Being frequent visitors to Spain we suddenly realized we actually never tried making our own Sangria. Why, why, WHY? It’s the perfect party punch for hot summer days and refreshing when you desperately need something chilly (preferable with alcohol) to drink while lying by the pool. So, tadaaa, today we came up with this super delicious Sangria recipe.

Remember that you don’t have to use the most fancy of wines but we recommend that you don’t go for the cheapest one either.





1 bottle of white wine (a semi dry Rioja works perfectly well)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 orange
1 lemon
8-10 strawberries
1 bottle (275 ml) Vodka Orange Mix

Pour the chilled wine into a pitcher. Stir in the sugar and cinnamon until dissolved. Cut the orange, lemon and strawberries and add the fruit into the pitcher together with one bottle of Vodka Orange Mix. Use slices of fruit as garnish and serve with ice.

What is your best Sangria recipe? Pls share with us.
