Adapted from a recipe on Chambordchannel.com
Summer is almost here and it’s Sangria time? Though I’m not much of a rule follower, summer cocktails, winter drinks, whatever. I love Sangria. It’s a great cocktail that’s not too sweet, full of fresh flavours and can be enjoyed any time, any season. I’d even argue that it’s a winter drink because citrus is in peak season in the cooler months. Traditionally made in a pitcher of large amounts, I wanted to do a single serve version to enjoy on a whim. So I whipped up this Sangria-For-One recipe to enjoy on a Sunday evening while winding down and getting ready for another work week.
What you’ll need
7 oz of chilled dry red wine
1 oz Chambord (French black raspberry liqueur)
1 orange slice (cut into 4s)1 lemon slice
What to do
In a stemless glass combine the wine, Chambord and fruit. Let sit for about 10 minutes until the flavours merry. Or you can mix this during the day and refrigerate for a couple of hours. The fruit flavours come through more if left to chill.
