Sorry, but no updates will be done on this site from now on. I decided to put all my efforts on the Swedish site. You'll find a translation tool on the right hand side, Translate this site / Traducir esta Página (powered by Google) or you can use the links below. You may have a good laugh since the translations sometimes mess it up, but I'm sure you will find a lot more to read this way:

Sorry for any inconvience!

A pitcher with refreshing SangriaSangria

Sangria is a typical Spanish drink during the summer, which we can enjoy a hot summer night.

It can also be served as a non-alcholic soft drink...

Ingredients, 6 - 8 servings:

  • 1/2 - 1 orange
  • 1/2 -1 lemon
  • 1/2 -1 apple
  • 0,2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 3 cloves
  • 1 bottle of red, Spanish wine
  • 2 oz brandy or cognac (may be excluded)
  • 1 bottle (11 oz) of lemonade or soda-water
  • Ice cubes

Rinse of and wash the orange and lemon carefully and cut them into thin slices.

Peel the apple and remove the pips. Cut it into thin slices.

Mix the fruits with the sugar, the cinnamon and cloves in a large pitcher.

Add the red vine and the brandy and stir until the sugar dissolves.

Taste and add more sugar if necessary.

Leave the pitcher in the fridge for at least one hour.

At the time of the serving the soda and ice are added.

Stir and serve in chilled glasses.

Non-alcoholic sangria: Skip the brandy and replace the red wine with non-alcoholic wine.
