Sangria Española

We’re not ready to say “So long”….to summer! September is almost here but there are still a few warm days to enjoy. We tweaked a recipe for Spanish Sangria using artisan crafted Villa Graziella IGT Rosso Toscano red wine made with single estate, red berry rich Canaiolo, Colorino & Sangiovese organic grapes. Simple & not too sweet, no cinnamon or sugar, we used tangy citrus fruit & sparkling water for a refreshing libation. Makes 6 abundant servings. 

Easy Ingredients

  • 1 750 ML (25.36 Oz) bottle of Villa Graziella IGT Rosso Toscano
  • 2 oranges
  • 2 lemons
  • Peaches or apricots optional  
  • 1 can carbonated water, flavored soda water or ginger ale.

Simple Directions

  1. Wash oranges, slice & set aside
  2. Wash lemons, slice, remove the seeds & set aside 
  3. Chop peaches in thick chunks with skin on (optional)
  4. In a large pitcher or bowl, stir together Rosso Toscano wine, orange & lemon slices
  5. Add peach chunks & carbonated soda water
  6. Stir briskly
  7. Refrigerate two hours to overnight, allowing sangria to absorb the fruit flavors & citrus aromas
  8. Serve in frosted glasses over ice (optional) 
  9. Enjoy with your favorite lite bites or small plates
  10. Refrigerate covered for 2 days
