“Goodness! What’s your secret for winter sangria?”
This recipe balances light flavors with sweet and fruity notes. The unique yet easy-to-find ingredients will have your guests begging for the recipe. What’s the big secret?
1. We use Lambrusco wine, instead of the popular Cabernet Sauvignon. The berry flavor shines through and Lambrusco is naturally sparkly, so you won’t dilute a good wine with too much sparkling water.
2. Use fuji apples or a similar variety. You want an apple that will stay crisp and sweet after macerating in wine.
3. Add herbs! Mint or rosemary will infuse your sangria with playful earthy notes to really hit the spot.
4. “Spill” a bit of brandy for the final depth of nutty flavors, a hint of caramel, and a floral aftertaste.
