When summer roles around, the Spanish concoction called Sangria is highly recommended. This wine-based punch is a refreshing drink for long lunches or sundowners. I make mine the following way:
1 Bottle Oranjerivier Wine Cellars Shiraz, Cabernet or Pinotage
500ml Soda water
2 Apples, 1 cup of strawberries, half a peeled lemon, 2 peeled oranges….actually, any fruit you like!Method:
Chop the fruit into bite-size pieces. Place the fruit in a glass jug and add the wine and the brandy. Place the jug in the refrigerator for at least one hour to allow the fruit flavours to mingle with the wine and brandy. Before serving, remove the jug and add the soda water and lemonade to the mix, as well as a couple of handsful of ice cubes.
Drink from wine glasses and get the taste of summer!
