Sangria III

READY IN: 4hrs 35mins
Recipe by Bev I Am

This version of Sangria appeared in the August issue of Gourmet Magazine in 1961. Fruit-filled pitchers of sangria appeared at lots of parties in the '60s. Macerating the fruit in a sugar syrup first makes this one particularly flavorful.

This is like a sweet wine spritzer with fruit. Was very good. I`m used to my Sangria a bit stronger. Made with brandy, triple sec and OJ.
