Easy Traditional Red Sangria
Preparation time: 5 mins
1/2 medium apple, cored, skin on, chopped into small pieces
1/2 medium orange, rind on, sliced into small pieces with seeds removed. Plus more for garnish.
3-4 TB organic brown sugar
3/4 cup orange juice, plus more to taste
1/3 cup brandy, plus more to taste
750ml bottle of dry Spanish red wine*
1 cup ice, to chill
Add apples, oranges, and sugar to a large pitcher and muddle with a muddler or wooden spoon for 45 seconds.
Add orange juice and brandy and muddle again to combine for 30 seconds.
Add red wine and stir to incorporate, then taste and adjust flavor as needed. I added a bit more brandy, orange juice and brown sugar. Stir to combine.
Add ice and stir once more to chill. Serve as is, or with a bit more ice. Garnish with orange segments (optional).
Drink & Enjoy.
