Hot Sangria Recipe
Do you like it hot, hot, hot? Are you planning a BBQ where things get spicy? This sangria will be the perfect partner to your dishes!
Triple Sec is an orange flavored liqueur. You can substitute in Cointreau or Grand Marnier which are also orange liqueurs.
1 750ml bottle red wine, preferably Rioja
1 Tbsp lime juice
1 lemon, in wedges
1 Tbsp orange juice
1 orange, in wedges
1 Tbsp sugar
1 shot brandy
1 shot Triple Sec
1 tsp hot sauce
1 bottle sparkling water
Prepare a large bowl or pitcher. Mix together the red wine, lime juice, lemon, orange juice, orange, sugar, brandy, Triple sec and Hot Sauce. Let chill overnight.
In the morning, mix in the sparkling water. Be sure to do this last so it does not go fast overnight. Add in some ice. It works well to use frozen lime and orange juice cubes to prevent dilution.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
