Grilled Citrus and Grape Sangria
ACTIVE: 20 MIN  | TOTAL TIME: 1 HR 45 MIN  | SERVINGS: 6 TO 8


INGREDIENTS
  • 3 cups stemmed seedless red grapes
  • 2 oranges, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch wheels
  • 2 lemons, cut crosswise into 1/2-inch wheels
  • Two 750-milliliter bottles rosé
  • 8 ounces simple syrup (see Note)
  • 8 ounces brandy
  • Ice


INTRUCTIONS
  1. Light a hardwood charcoal fire. Put the grapes on a perforated grill sheet or in a grill basket and grill over high heat, tossing occasionally, until they just start to burst, about 6 minutes. Transfer the grapes to a plate to cool completely.
  2. Meanwhile, grill the orange and lemon wheels over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate to cool completely.
  3. In a large pitcher, combine the wine with the *simple syrup, brandy and grilled fruit and stir well. Refrigerate until the sangria is chilled and the flavors are blended, at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours. Serve the sangria over ice.

* To make simple syrup, combine equal amounts of sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil; simmer, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove the syrup from the heat and let cool completely. The simple syrup can be refrigerated in a glass jar for up to 1 month.
