I love sangria and this recipe from Flavours magazine is my favourite. Just a note, it is potent!!! Mix with lots of soda water.
I really don't know what they mean by cutting the peel into a long spiral. I just took each slice of fruit and removed the peel in a long spiral. I also removed all the white pith.
1 1/2 bottles dry red wine
1 large lemon, thinly sliced with the peel cut into a long spiral
1 large orange, thinly sliced with the peel cut into a long spiral
1/2 lime, thinly sliced with the peel cut into a long spiral
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brandy
1/4 cup gin
green seedless grapes
2 cups club soda
apple, orange and lemon wheels, for garnish
Combine all ingredients, except soda and ice, in a large glass pitcher. Stir well, cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Fill each glass with ice cubes. Add liquor mixture to each glass to the halfway mark. Top with club soda. Garnish with an orange, apple and lemon wheel.
