Strawberry Orange Peel Sangria Recipe
Strawberries and orange is a delicious flavor combination. If you can't get fresh strawberries, frozen ones are quite fine and can double as ice cubes!
You have two choices here. One is to use whole strawberries for that cool visual appeal. It's nice to see one or two big strawberries floating in a glass. The other option is to cut the strawberry into smaller bite-sized pieces. That makes it much easier to drink and take in a piece or two with each sip. It also allows the strawberry flavor to better peremeate the sangria.
1/4 tsp orange peel
1 glass Chardonnay
Cut or do not cut the strawberries based on your visual and flavorful desires. I use them whole if it's a party where presentation is important, but cut them into pieces otherwise. Add in the orange peel. It almost looks like a snow globe when you first mix it in! Now fill the glass with cold Chardonnay. You want to go for a citrussy / fruity Chardonnay, not a minerally style. Serve cold!
If you use frozen strawberries you get the added benefit of them chilling your drink, but it also means you have to wait a few minutes for them to that before you can start eating them :)
To turn this into a party sangria recipe, there are usually four large glasses of wine in a 750ml bottle of wine. Simply multiply all ingredients by four and use a full bottle of wine in a large pitcher or bowl.

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 :)
