Spring Time Sangria

There’s really nothing more gorgeous than a glass of sangria. It’s an easy recipe to make and you can alter it as needed. I mix up different kinds of fruit depending on what looks best at the farmers market. Strawberries are always a good idea, and any other kinds of berries work for that matter too. If it’s stone fruit season, you can add some nectarines or peaches and any kind of citrus you want. I like to add a few basil leaves right before I serve it because it gives it a pop of color and makes it extra fresh! Enjoy!
1/3 cup white sugar 1/3 cup brandy 2 cups sliced strawberries 1 blood orange, sliced into thin rounds 1 cara cara, sliced into thin rounds 1 tangelo, sliced into thin rounds 1 bottle Rosé 1 bottle Sauvignon Blanc 1 cup chilled club soda or sparkling water 10-20 basil leaves Add the sugar and brandy to a large pitcher and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add the fresh fruit, wine and club soda and stir to combine. Refrigerate the sangria for at least 6 hours, add the basil before serving and serve over ice.
A wonderful addition to Sangria Family of drinks!
