Sangria is a typical Spanish drink that is usually prepared in summer. A refreshing beverage and fruity very easy to prepare at home, with a sweet taste and can be customized to each other’s tastes.
As with almost all the recipes, there are always many different ways to do it. You will find homemade sangria recipes where other fruits are used, where more alcohol is added (like a splash of vermouth) or the sugar is changed by a drizzle of sweet Muscat-type wine.
In turn, it is also common to find sangria with white wine and even cava. That is, you can prepare an indentation with more or less alcohol and different colors, but the base is always going to be the same, wine and fruit.
An important fact, it has to be prepared with a few hours in advance when being served so that the wine takes the flavors of the fruit-about two hours before-but you have to be careful so that the fruits do not ferment.

Homemade Sangria Recipe: Preparation
The typical recommendation to make a homemade sangria is to use a young wine, so you do not need to use a very expensive wine but, to be able, also choose a wine better than the cardboard.
Peel all fruits except lemon, cut in dice or slices and add to a jar. We’ve put it all in a saucepan for the size of the sangria.
Squeeze a lemon, the other orange the entire reserves. Pour the juice into the fruit mix.
Open the bottle of wine and pour on the fruits all the content. It also incorporates the Cinnamon branch.
In a cup of lukewarm or warm water, you dissolve the two tablespoons of sugar. The reason for doing it in water is because it is more complex to dissolve the sugar in cold liquids, so to do it directly on the wine will not work. You add it to the wine, too.
We’ve let him macerate for about two hours, no more.
We pass it to a jug and add a glass or two of soda (this goes to taste, you can not throw it), we also add the orange cut into thick slices and the ices.
It only remains to serve and to enjoy.
