Sangria was a hot topic on my cooking board a couple of days ago, so there began my inspiration. I found this really fruity one on Melissa's blog - Mrs Sac's Purple Kitchen. I loved the fruitiness of the drink; I thought too late that I should have added some strawberries. Oh well - next time! I also didn't have enough rum for the whole thing, so I used about 1/4 cup of coconut rum. I don't usually like coconut, but I loved the tropical taste it lent to the drink.
(I submitted this to Joelen's Sangria blogging event.)
- 1 lemon
- 1 lime
- 1 orange
- 1 1/2 cups rum
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 (750 milliliter) bottle dry redwine
- 1 cup orange juice
2. When ready to serve, crush the fruit lightly with a wooden spoon and stir in the wine and orange juice. Adjust sweetness to taste.
