I am known in San Francisco for what they called my "Philadelphia Sangria"-as I'm from Philly...I use about 1/2 bottle of Christian Brothers Brandy, a bottle of Chianti (Chianti I found works best, 3/4 cup of sugar and almost equal to the wine is orange juice. This is easy and quick-for a party we freeze fruit (seedless grapes are great and serve out of a punch bowl. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for a party and people seemed to enjoy it. I tripled the recipe and had some left once guests had left. That was an indicator that this was just okay. I made it 2 hours before guests arrived but I'm thinking I should have made it the night before. Not sure if i will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Turned out really well. Next time I will try some other fruits in there as well. For brandy, I used the last of some well cherry brandy I had and the orange liquor was Grand Marnier. Oh... I added a bit of juice from my homemade spiced, brandied cherries as well (secret ingredient :- item not reviewed by moderator and published
Anyone who explores foods...this will make you happy! The ingredients are very different from the "typical" but the FLAVORS are terrific. Try it and give feedback! Annie , Fremont , CA item not reviewed by moderator and published
Super yummy and on the strong side sangria; I don't use brandy often and was able to get a small bottle from the small bottle collection they usually keep behind the counter at the liquor store. Any orange liqueur will work as well. item not reviewed by moderator and published
