With the summer weather still in full force for a lot of us, I thought a Sangria would do the trick as a liquid accompaniment for a relaxing braai (barbecue) with family or friends and best of all it can be made ahead of time.
50g castor sugar
Rind from one orange
2 sticks cinnamon
750ml orange juice
750ml dry red wine
1 litre lemonade / sprite
1 orange quartered and sliced
1 lime thinly sliced
1 red apple cored and sliced
- Combine the sugar, port, orange rind, spices and juice in a saucepan and heat over a medium heat until the sugar has dissolved.
- Simmer for 5 minutes
- Remove from the heat and cool.
- Add the wine, brandy, lemonade, orange and lime and stir through and refrigerate overnight.
- Add the apple just before serving.
