Friday Night Wine Pick: Real Sangria

I came across this pre-made sangria last summer and was amazed at how good it was, and at such a good price ($8.25). I used to make sangria from scratch, but not anymore. This stuff is not too sweet, so it goes down really easy on a hot summers day (some might say too easy). It is a mix of red wine and citrus. As the LCBO site says: “It has a ruby red colour; red berry, plum and orange aromas; off-dry fruit flavours, light body”.

Real Sangria is from Spain, which is where I think all sangrias should be from! To serve, all I do, beside chill, open and pour into a pitcher, is add some fresh berries, maybe some orange and lemon slices, ice and, if I am in a special frame of mind, a splash of Grand Marnier. If you want a lighter alcoholic drink, you could add some club soda and/or some orange juice. It is great with appetizers and lighter meat dishes.

 Cheers!  Mary Anne

I keep adding different things to change it up. Last weekend was pineapple juice. Very yummy!
