My SO keeps tring to make the perfect sangria. We aren't there yet. I'm hoping a recipe posted here will get the job done for her.

Rachel on Oprah

http://www2.oprah.com/foodhome/food/...2_spritz.jhtml


Rachael Ray's sangria is quick, easy and oh so delicious!

INGREDIENTS
2 tsp. sugar
1 orange sliced
A good shot of brandy
56 oz. Rioja wine
Splash lemon-lime club soda

Add sugar, 2 orange slices and a good shot of brandy to a cocktail shaker. Muddle together until the sugar is dissolved. Add ice cubes to the shaker along with the Rioja wine. Shake and strain into a martini glass and top with a splash of lemon-lime club soda. Garnish with an orange slice.

I can't say this is good because I don't have all the ingredients. Just watching Rachel makes one want to try what she makes. Oprah for one looked like she was impressed w/things she made on her show. I always figure people on tv are always looking for the best, so I hope this is one of them.

Here ya go, Lori:

Also depends on if you prefer red or white wine. The White can be very refreshing. Check out the White Sangria recipe. Serve it in a glass pitcher to enjoy the eye-pleasing fruits floating around. Best Sangria I ever had was in Central Park, New York City, at a cafe near Bathesda Fountain. Wish I asked for their recipe. Enjoy!

Can't beat this view for Sangria drinking.

ITK, I get so homesick for New York City when I see the pics. You could rent a rowboat or watch the boats go by. What a time I had! Makes me long for Lincoln Center, walking thru Central Park to work on Madison Ave., the ballet, Broadway shows, and on and on. Ahhh, Sangria. Will have to make a batch soon. Funny how food brings back good memories

INGREDIENTS
• 2 tsp. sugar
• 1 orange sliced
• A good shot of brandy
• 5–6 oz. Rioja wine
• Splash lemon-lime club soda

Add sugar, 2 orange slices and a good shot of brandy to a cocktail shaker. Muddle together until the sugar is dissolved. Add ice cubes to the shaker along with the Rioja wine. Shake and strain into a martini glass and top with a splash of lemon-lime club soda. Garnish with an orange slice. .

This is a recipe for a single serving. I like to make it by the pitcher.

I pour a bottle of fruity red wine into a pitcher. I add some fresh squeezed lime, lemon and oraneg and some cut up lime, lemon, orange, apples and cherries (if I can get them). I add a cup of good brandy. Then 1/2 liter of club soda or dry orange soda (you can add more). Then sugar to taste (start with maybe 1/4 cup). Let it sit in the fridge for at least 2 hours before serving.

Jenny, I remember you posting about sangria last summer. I'm not a big fan of sweet drinks, but maybe this summer is the time to branch out and 'speriment a little while we are at the beach.

What do you recommend serving/eating with sangria?
