Sangria & Some Twists

Classic Sangria
...and some not so classic

Life can be so good with a jug of Sangria on the table. With friends on a warm day you can recreate the Costa Del Sol feeling.

The classic Spanish way to make a Sangria is all about subtle flavours – fundamentally its a fruit punch but in reality it is so much more than that.. It’s the perfect balance of dry and sweet.

The classic version is made with red wine, diced fruit, orange juice and occasionally – brandy.

You can also use white wine or rose.

For a twist try our Lemonade Sangria
