Sangria is one of those drinks which makes you feel like you’re on a summer vacation. You can use pretty much any fruit you like but, to me, strawberries add an extra summery feeling to the drink.
Ingredients (serves 2, scale up as needed):
- 2 cups red wine
- 1 large orange
- 1/2 lemon
- 3-4 strawberries
- 1 shot cointreau
Mix the wine and the cointreau and then add the juice from the orange. Slice the lemon and the strawberries and add them to the mix. Allow the flavors to infuse in the fridge for about half an hour before serving. If you need to keep it cold for a while, freeze the sliced strawberries overnight before making the sangria, and use them instead of ice.
