All righty, then. Here's what I'm going with as a sangria recipe tonight:

  • 1/4 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 750 ml. red Italian wine
  • 1/2 c. brandy
  • 1/2 c. triple sec
  • 1/4 c. lemon juice
  • 1/4 c. lime juice
  • 1/3 c. orange juice
  • 2 lemon rinds
  • 2 lime rinds
  • Lemon-lime soda, or soda water

  1. Combine sugar and water in a Pyrex container. Heat at high in a microwave for 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine all remaining ingredients except the soda in a sealable pitcher. Place in refrigerator.
  3. When sugar water has cooled, add it to the pitcher. Refrigerate wine mixture overnight.
  4. To serve, pour 1 part soda to about 4 parts wine in a large glass. Add ice.

I'm winging it here, folks, but I think the results will be at least drinkable. Also, kudos to this recipe on upon which this experimental recipe was based. Dudes and dudettes... 1/4 cup triple sec? Gutsiest move I ever saw, man. I'll let you know how it turns out.
