This sangria is perfect for your 4th of July celebration! It’s sweet, delicious, and it serves a crowd.
I serve it cold and add all the spices you’d put in an apple pie.
Its ruby hue turns the floating islands of fruit the prettiest color.
I always use Southern Comfort instead of the customary brandy or rum because it comes with it’s own sweet and spiced flavor.
1 Bottle Red Wine
1/4 Cup Triple Sec
1/2 Cup Southern Comfort Whiskey
1/4 Cup Dark Brown Sugar
2 Cups Citrus Juice (Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon)
2 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Star Anise
1 Vanilla Bean, split
10 Cloves, whole
1 Orange, sliced
1 Lemon, sliced
Combine ingredients, except sliced citrus, in a large pitcher and stir. Refrigerate overnight for the best flavor. Add the sliced citrus just before serving. Enjoy!
