This version of sangria takes only seconds to make and requires only a handful of ingredients: lemons, oranges, sugar, inexpensive wine, and triple sec. Although this recipe takes seconds to make, it’s extremely important to let the sangria sit before drinking, at least two hours. A full eight hours is best and will give the sangria the best flavor.
Why not bring a pitcher to liven up that backyard barbecue you’re invited to? It’s guaranteed to keep you cool all summer long!
- 2 large juice oranges, 1 cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices, 1 juiced
- 1 large lemon, cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons Triple Sec
- 1 (750-ml.) bottle fruity white wine (a medium-bodied Pinot Grigio or an un-oaked Chardonnay), chilled
1. Add sliced orange, lemon, and sugar to large pitcher; mash gently with wooden spoon until fruit releases some juice, but is not totally crushed, and sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Stir in orange juice, Triple Sec, and wine; refrigerate for at least 2, and up to 8, hours.
2. Before serving, stir briskly to distribute settled fruit and pulp; serve immediately over ice if desired.
