I have a confession....I am awful at remembering to post this feature! But I found a good recipe to share with you this holiday weekend so hopefully you'll forgive me! ☺
Note: This sangria takes 5 - 10 minutes to assemble in a large pitcher. Take the time to prepare it early so the sangria has several hours to develop its fruity flavor.
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons (3 splashes) spiced dark rum
3 tablespoons orange liqueur
1 navel orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
2 ripe peaches, cut into wedges
3 ripe plums, cut into wedges
2 cinnamon sticks
1 bottle Rioja
Sparkling soda water, for topping off glasses of sangria at table
Combine sugar, rum, orange liqueur, fruits, and cinnamon sticks in a large pitcher. Cover with 1 bottle of wine and chill sangria several hours.
To serve, spoon fruits into glasses or goblets and pour over spiced wine. Top glasses of sangria off with a splash of soda water
