Sangria Recipes| Food & Wine

27 Sep

I know it’s a Monday. There are just some Mondays that make you want to drink. But don’t bring out the hard liquor yet my fellow alkie, let’s start the week with something festive and light and progress to the gin and tonic later in the week, shall we? My fave from the Food & Wine Sangria slideshow:

Shinsei Sangria

Ingredients

  1. 3 pears, sliced
  2. 3 oranges, sliced
  3. 6 Granny Smith apples, sliced
  4. 24 canned lychees, drained
  5. 1 1/2 pineapples, peeled and cut into large chunks
  6. One 750-milliliter bottle vodka
  7. One 750-milliliter bottle Sauvignon Blanc or other dry, citrusy white wine
  8. One 750-milliliter bottle sake
  9. Ice

Directions

  1. In an airtight container or large bowl covered with plastic wrap, combine all of the ingredients except the ice and refrigerate for at least 24 hours. Strain the mixture into a punch bowl, discarding all of the fruit except for the lychees. Add enough ice to chill the sangria to serving temperature. Serve in ice-filled white wine glasses.
