I was inspired to make a Sangria combining the refreshing flavors of raspberries and lemon. I just took a sip of this batch. It's soooo good!
Sorry, I do not have pretty wine glasses in my apartment. That will be purchase number 3 when I move into my permanent place. Whenever that is…
I digress… Anyhoo here's what I put in this recipe:
1 box of raspberries in a bowl with a generous amount of sugar and thin slices of lemon. I covered the bowl and let it sit in my fridge for an hour.
After the hour was up, I was left with raspberries that has broken down into a thick and tart syrup.
I added one bottle of White Zinfendel wine, 1/2 cup of Simply Raspberry Lemonade, 3/4 cup brandy, and the bowl of raspberry syrup.
I let the mixture sit over night and this morning I got the above results. Quite frankly, it taste just like the juice in the bottle but after the 2nd or 3rd sip, the brandy sneaks up on you.
Lindsay & I are going to enjoy this Sangria while we watch the “Bridesmaids” movie later tonight.
