I think before moving up to Indy I had only made Sangria once and honestly forgot about the drink entirely (obviously the recipe was that good). But when John and I ate at Barcelona Tapas our waitress told her us the basics to their recipe – which actually included boxed wine. So I toyed with the recipe a few times until I came up with the perfect concoction. Here are a few key pieces to this easy recipe though. You don’t have to use a real nice expensive wine. I always get about a $10 bottle. The other key point is to let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours. And the best part is after you and your friends finish the pitcher you still have the wine soaked fruit to munch on.
So in honor of National Sangria Day enjoy a glass, maybe enjoy it with some Spanish Tapas or a big bowl of Fettuccine Bolognese.
