Need sangria recipe

I am in love with a sangria at my local brick oven pizza place... Of course they refuse to share the recipe.

Anyone have a good sangria recipe that includes cinnamon &/or nutmeg? I'm pretty sure this sangria has one or both of those ingredients in it...

Thanks in advance!!! :)

Mine does not have cinnamon or nutmeg in it but I'm willing to share. It's nothing crazy but easy to make. I always make it the night before you are serving it.

I usually get one of those handles of wine. Carl Rossi sangria flavor.

1 handle of wine.
Triple sec.
Brandy.
Any schnapps liquor if you have but not necessary.
Sugar.
2 apples sliced.
2 peaches sliced.
2 kiwi
2 limes, 1 sliced and 1 for juice.
2 lemons, 1 sliced and 1 for juice.

I believe that's it.

Enjoy!

Welcome to you both! As a former bartender and frequent visitor to Mexico, I would suggest using the cheapest wine you can get, and put a whole bunch of citrus in it. The thread here on DC has a bunch of nice recipes for sangria. Check it out!

I've not made this yet but did bookmark it as something I'd like to try. It has the spices you were looking for. =) Let me know how it turns out if you make it!

Honeycrisp Apple Sangria

2 honeycrisp apples
one 750-milliliter bottle unoaked chardonnay
½ cup peach Schnapps
¼ cup honey
2 oranges, 1 quartered
1 lemon, quartered
1 lime, quartered
2 cinnamon sticks
2 quarter-size slices of fresh ginger
3 whole cloves
2 tablespoon sugar
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
ice
club soda
mint sprigs, for garnish (we skipped)


Peel, core and chop 1 of the apples. In a bowl, combine the chardonnay, Schnapps and honey. Add the quartered orange, the lemon, lime, cinnamon sticks, the chopped apple, ginger and cloves and refrigerate at least 4 hours.

Strain the sangria into a pitcher. Peel, core and finely chop the remaining apple. Peel, section and chop the remaining orange. Mix the apple and orange in a bowl.

On a small plate, blend the sugar and cinnamon. Moisten the rims of wine glasses and dip in the cinnamon sugar to coat. Fill the glasses with ice. Pour in the sangria until three-quarters full. Top with a splash of club soda. Garnish with a spoonful of the chopped apple and orange and a mint sprig.

Sangrías - Original recipe 1800s

Hi,

I am a new member who has been living in between Italy and Madrid Capital, Spain for my profession.

Normally Sangría is made with La Rioja Red Wine and Jerez Brandy and Casis.

The original recipe was created in the 1800s in Spain.
It was introduced in the USA, during the World´s Fair in NYC.


Just wanted to say: Your White Wine Punch looks fabulous ... We are having a cold spell here ... brutal winds.

Margi Cintrano.

Enjoy!
+1.
10% Cointreau, 20% Brandy, 70% wine.
Cointreau works well in place of triple sec.
I go easy on the sugar and fruit.
