With the weather starting to warm up, I’m getting really excited to make some spring/summer dishes. One of my favorite drinks during this time is Sangria, maybe a little too much of it sometimes 🙂 This recipe isn’t from a Good Eats episode, but it is from Alton Brown. Food Network has a page “Sangria 6 Ways” with different food network chefs recipes, and this is AB’s.
* 2 cups sliced fruit, any combination of oranges, lemons, apples, pears, and plums
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 1/2 cup brandy
* 2 bottles red wine, preferably Burgundy
Place the fruit, sugar, and brandy in a 2 to 3 quart pitcher and stir to combine. Set in the refrigerator for 6 to 8 hours. Add the wine and stir to combine. Serve over ice.

I usually like my Sangria a little sweeter so I add a little bit of orange juice to this recipe. So yummy!
