A delicious red wine punch from Spain, Sangria (san-gree-yah) has become increasingly popular outside the Iberian
Peninsula in recent years. It is possible to buy commercially bottled Sangria, but it’s much more fun and quite economical to make your own – and it tastes better anyway/ Sangria should be served very cold.
2 ½ oz. castor sugar 5 tablespoons lemon juice 2 pints red wine 10 fl. oz. water about
12 ice cubes
1 orange, thinly sliced
1 lemon, thinly sliced
In a small mixing bowl, combine the sugar and lemon juice, stirring vigorously until the sugar has dissolved.
Pour the sugar and lemon mixture into a large punch bowl or jug and add the wine, stirring constantly with a long-handled spoon. Pour in the water and add the ice cubes.
Decorate the sangria with the orange and lemon slices and serve at once.
