Check out our video:
Slice the fruit into round slices.
Put sliced fruit. rum and sugar in the pitcher.
Place in fridge for 2-3 hours.
Mottle the fruit, rum and sugar together.
Add the wine and OJ.
Taste – add sugar if you want it sweeter.
This makes probably about 45 ozs of beverage so depending on glass size and other bevs provided, multiply accordingly.
The key is to serve it cold and let the fruit, rum and sugar hang out together for at least 2 hours.
There are a ton of sangria recipes on the web but since I’m a red wine kind of girl and I like a drink that is a bit strong, this is my favorite.
