I didn’t want this sangria recipe to get lost within the Mexican Feast post, so I’m putting it up on its own too:
- 1 apple
- 1 orange
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- (Add any other fruit that you want to, I just find these fruits worked out amazingly)
- 1.5 cups rum (make it a good rum, because this taste is what you taste the most)
- 0.5 cup white sugar
- 1 bottle red wine (can be cheap)
- 1 cup orange juice
Cut up the fruit and mix it with the rum and white sugar in a pitcher. Put the pitcher into the fridge and allow to rest for at least 2 hours to allow the flavors to meld.
After the mixture has rested, add the red wine and orange juice. Serve chilled over ice. When the ice melts, it actually enhances the overall flavor of the sangria.
Note: This sangria really only gets better the longer it sits because the fruit continues to add flavor.
