Ok, ok, ok. I know that Sangria is not a Mexican drink but it’s festive and fresh, and I wanted to post the recipe for all of you that want to have an easy, fruity drink for your 5 de Mayo gather.
What you need:
1 bottle of red wine (not your cheapest, not your best)
1 large bottle of sparkling water
1 cup of orange juice (or more depending on how sweet you want it)
1 cup of cantaloupe, diced into small cubes
1 cup of watermelon, diced into small cubes
1 cup of pineapple, diced into small cubes
You can use almost any fruit: I’ve used peaches and plums, strawberries, apples, pears…
How to make it:
In a large pitcher combine the wine, sparkling water, and juice. Add the fruits and let it rest in the fridge for a little while before serving. Note: Put some teaspoons next to it so people can scoop the fruit from their glasses.
