Alright, guys: you asked for it. Here in the very first episode of How To Tuesday, I will show you how to make the perfect sangria. Bottoms up:

In case you were so mesmerized by my face, here is the recipe again:

  • 4 bottles Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1 bottle White Zinfandel
  • 10 oz. Triple Sec
  • 6 oz. 7 Star Brandy
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 6 oz. Pomegranate juice
  • 6 oz. 7Up
  • Fresh fruit cut into cubes or small slices.  You can use whatever you like, but realize it will effect the way your sangria tastes. Apples, pears, grapes, pineapple, mango all work well.

Combine all wine, liquor and sugar in a large glass container. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add fruit, pomegranate juice, and 7up and stir again. Refrigerate over night for flavors to combine. (If you can’t wait that long- it’s still fine to drink right away).
