A sangria punch recipe is the perfect drink recipe whether you’re planning to assemble a tapas night with some friends, or hosting a big party. Simply get a punch bowl, get a bunch of your favorite flavor drinks and juices, and slice up some fruits. Don’t forget the ladle so anyone in the party can scoop up their drink!
If you want to up the alcoholic content, brandy and rum make a great addition. Brandy has a specifically smooth yet dry taste. Fruits absorb rum pretty well, too. When you mix both drinks with wine, you get a taste of the cocktail close to its authentic taste. When choosing wine, low tannin red wines such as Garnachee or Pinot Noir are best, especially since we’re after a fruity flavor. If you only have a high tannin wine available, balance it with a sweetener such as brown sugar or maple syrup.
On the other hand, you don’t need to host a party to make a sangria punch recipe. Make a small batch, store them on the fridge, and consume when you feel like it. Since they store well for more than a week, why not make them into ice cubes? Put some into a tall glass filled with water, and have it as a refreshing drink. If you’re the type who enjoy turning every recipe into “strictly for adults,” try our Strawberry Margarita Popsicle Recipe. Just make sure to put it someplace where the kids can’t reach.
