This is more of a formula than a specific recipe: it starts with a base of simple syrup, orange juice, brandy, and a dash of bitters. To that you can add red, white, or sparkling wine and whatever fruit you like (though it’s always good to include some citrus).
Whatever kind of wine you choose, don’t think that spending $5 on a bottle is going to yield delicious results. Choose a wine you’d drink on its own.
This is a fabulous recipe, and the author’s general guide to sangria “How to create your own sangria” (also here online) is well worth the read. In it, he recommends Spanish Garnacha (red) and a Spanish Albariño (white). I’ve tried this recipe as-is and a few variations following his guidance and enjoyed every one thoroughly.
I have always thought of Sangria as very sweet and made with bad wine. Not this one, I have made this Sangria twice. It's delicious tastes so fresh and my guests love it. Thanks.
