We thought we would share Ben’s Sangria recipe as we are sure you will have happy memories…
“I remember sitting in a bar somewhere on Ibiza years ago and having a jug of sangria. It was so good we had to have another one so we could watch what he put in. I never quite got – or rather forgot – it but it went something like this:”
1 bottle of Molino Loco Monastrell
½ bottle of Molino Loco Rosado
50ml Spanish brandy
50ml Coffee Liqueur
50ml Orange liqueur
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
500ml orangeade or lemonade.
More fruit – strawberries, peach, nectarine etc
Tall glasses and lots of ice
Soda water to top up (for the faint hearted.)
Most people put a bit of sugar in as well but that’s probably what gives it such an evil reputation – or it could be the brandy, Drambuie or Kahlua.
It’s definitely a good idea to mix the fruit and booze together ahead of time.
