Sangria: Sangria is the perfect alcoholic beverage to enjoy during the day, preferably during lunch. The fruity, sweet wine punch comes from Spain and is made with seasonal fruit, sweetener, a good splash of wine brandy, and possibly something fizzy added in like soda. But one can always customise with one's own preferences and add herbs like basil, mint among other additions. However, some of the usual suspects found in a traditional Spanish sangria are:

Ingredients:

Fruit (like apples and oranges)

Orange juice

A sweetener (like brown sugar or cane sugar)

A liquor (like brandy or rum)

Bold, fruity, dry Spanish red wine (like Tempranillo, Garnacha, or other Rioja wine)

And Ice (for chilling)

2 basil or large mint leaves

2 sugar cubes

Club soda

Method:

In a rocks glass, muddle lemon juice, berries, sugar cubes and basil. Add liquors, stir. Add ice and top up with club soda. Gently stir to cool and combine. Garnish with more basil or mint leaves.
