video 02 | summer sangria


Our video for April is up on Vimeo! It's later in the month than we had hoped...  better late than never right? We had a pretty fun time filming everything this weekend, hopefully it comes through on camera. In case you missed last month's video, you can check it out here!



Summer sangria recipe (I know it's easier to follow in writing).

Ingredients

2 bottles red wine (merlot, cabernet, or similar)
1 cup brandy
1 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sugar
2 oranges
2 lemons
2 limes
2 apples
2 cups seltzer water

Directions

In a large pitcher, combine the wine, brandy, orange juice and sugar. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Add all of the fruit and refrigerate until chilled. You can drink it after an hour, but it's much tastier if you give it a night to meld. Remove from the fridge and add a splash of seltzer water. Enjoy!

  6. ¡Hola! What a cool video and happy song! I only drink sangria in the summer but I love the wine sweetened by the fruit. ¡Viva la sangría! I guess you might also like "agua de Valencia" (fresh orange juice + champagne + gin :)

  8. Hi Marta! Thanks for stopping by, we're so glad you like the video. Isn't sangria so good in the summer! Do you make it yourself when you drink it?

    Also, we're going to have to try out agua de Valencia too next time we make drinks :)
