Spring Sangria Recipe
Springtime is the time for daffodils, crocuses, the fresh buds on leaves and the fresh beauty of sunshine. Sangria is the perfect drink to enjoy this season with! Look for fresh fruits which are part of the bounty of spring! The bubbly Champagne in this recipe helps to brighten your world and wash away the lingering remnants of winter.
If you're going for an authentic Spanish feel, the sparkling wine made in Spain is known as cava.
3 apricots, cut into chunks
1 cantaloupe, balled
1 nectarine, broken into slices
1/2 cup apricot brandy
1 bottle sparkling wine / Champagne
Find a tupperware container that can hold about 2 cups of material. Add in the apricot pieces, cantaloupe, nectarine and brandy. Refrigerate at least an hour so the fruit flavors soak into the brandy. Overnight is better.
Add in the sparkling wine just before serving. so the bubbles stay fresh! Happy spring!
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 :)
