How To: Make the Perfect Sangria for Your Next Summer Party

Make the Perfect Sangria for Your Next Summer Party

Got a bottle of inexpensive, unopened red wine and some citrus fruits lying around in your kitchen? If you plan on throwing an outdoor summer party, you really can't go wrong with a pitcher full of homemade sangria.

For a basic sangria recipe, all you need to do is to combine orange juice, lemon juice, sweetener, red wine, and a generous splash each of orange liqueur (like triple sec) and brandy in a large pitcher. Let sit overnight in the refrigerator and serve the next day over a wine or cocktail glass filled halfway with ice.

For a visually pleasing drink, you can also add colorful chopped fruit at the beginning of the recipe and colorful garnishes such as fresh mint leaves, basil leaves, or a sprig of rosemary.
