Spring, summer and Cinco de Mayo Fiesta just demand Sangria. This is the best and prettiest Sangria I have ever had. This recipe comes from someone we all know and love, Ree Drummond - The Pioneer Woman Cooks. If you don't own this book, stop right here and go get one.
As Ree tells us, "Feel free to make your sangria all your own: use all white wine, half white, half blush, or all red. Add in flavored liquor, too. There are no rules! Just maintain some combination of wine and fruit and you're good to go."
I followed her recipe and I wouldn't change one thing, except the way she dissolves the sugar, which I have.
1 cup water
In a small saucepan add sugar and water, simmer for 4-5 minutes until sugar dissolves. Place in refrigerator to cool while you prepare the fruit.
l. Chop all the fruit. Place in a large container, I mean large.
Let me know if this is not the best sangria you have ever had. Share your sangria recipe with us.
