My Spanish roots are showing again, guys!! And I am proud to show them!
This easy-to-make Sangría is not only refreshing but loaded with lots of fresh fruit and alcohol!! Made with white wine, Cava, Brandy, peach juice, and simple syrup and topped with fresh fruits!
What is the favor profile?
Fruity, sweet, sharp, and refreshing.
What ingredients will I need to make this?
Sauvignon Blanc of your choice, Spanish Cava (Champagne, Prosecco, or Champagne will do as well), Brandy, Peach juice, simple syrup or agave, and fresh fruit.
What else will I need to make this?
A large pitcher, a measuring cup, a cutting board, a wooden spoon, and a fruit knife.
What is Cava?
What is simple syrup?
Simple syrup is just sugar and water and it is pretty easy to make... and easier to buy already made! But don’t worry... I will teach you how to make it as well.
Can I make substitutions?
Yes. You can substitute the Sauvignon Blanc with any white wine you want; the Cava with Spumante, Prosecco, or Sparkling wine, Champagne; the peach juice with pear or white grape juice; and the simple syrup with Agave Nectar.
Can I make it in advance?
If you wish to do so, yes!
You could make it overnight or hours in advance without adding the Cava until ready to serve. The longer it rests in the fridge the more the fruit bits release their flavor into the Sangría while absorbing the delicious flavors from the Rioja and Brandy.
Can I find another sangria recipe on this website?
Yes...I have a wonderful "Easy Sangria" recipe right here.
