Mexican Fruit Sangria

This Mexican alternative to sangria is bold and robust. It has all the familiar wine and fruit of Spanish sangria but with a higher level of alcohol. Beware: It’s more dangerous than it looks.

Ingredients

  • 2 bottles of red wine recommended: Rioja
  • 2 cups brandy
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1 orange sliced
  • 1 lemon sliced
  • 1 lime sliced
  • 1 apple cored, and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 pear cored, and cut into thin wedges
  • 1 750-ml bottle club soda, chilled
  • brown sugar or granulated sugar for glass rims
  • Ice

Instructions

  • Combine the wine, brandy, juice, and fruit in a large container or glass pitcher. Cover and chill completely, 1 to 2 hours or overnight.
  • Add soda to mixture when ready to serve. Using a little lime juice wet the rim of the glass and then coat it with brown or granulated sugar.
  • Serve with ice.

Notes

I prefer not to rim my glass with sugar but that’s just a personal preference. A great idea might be to have plates next to your punch bowl or pitcher with a variety of sugars so that guests can experiment.
