Love it: Sangria

August 6, 2009

I’ve always been a fan of Sangria, but ever since my recent trip to Spain I’ve been quite obsessed with it. So, that’s why I decided to make first-ever batch of Sangria for some friends tonight.  I am not sure what everyone else thought, but I really enjoyed this recipe.  In fact, I loved it.

If you’re looking for the perfect Sangria recipe, then I highly recommend the one I found on All Recipes. Enjoy!

    I LOVE sangria too 🙂 If you want a “healthy” version make it with white wine (riesling is AWESOME) and if you use a sweet enough one you can leave out the sugar and the brandy and it still tastes pretty good
