Wine and Cheese {and Sangria}

Yes, another wine and cheese party!

A new addition: an experimental Sangria which I would say turned out quite tasty. Be warned, this is not a very sweet sangria (unless you start with a sweet red wine) but I would say it was QUITE delicious. And next time, I will definitely double it.

Champagne Sangria

1 bottle dry red wine
2 lemons
2 limes
2 oranges
1 cup strawberries
2 small cans diced pineapple (and juice)
1/2 cup brandy
1 bottle of champagne

Slice the fruit, and soak it all in the wine and brandy for a few hours (or overnight). When ready to serve, add the bottle of champagne. Voila! Easy peasy, and super delicious. If you like your sangria very sweet, I would suggest either starting with a sweet wine, and/or making a simple syrup (sugar and water) to add. You can also add fruit juice or triple sec to sweeten it up. Enjoy!

Of course, everyone’s favorite usual suspect:

Happy fooding!
