Outdoor summer parties in Spain always include big jugs of this fruity, spiced wine punch. You can add seasonal fruit to give an extra burst of variety and colour – it seems so festive and is the perfect drink for a summer Christmas.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick cinnamon
1 orange
1 lemon
ice cubes
750ml dry red wine
1 1/4 litres soda water

Method

  1. Combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick in a saucepan and boil for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow the syrup to cool. Slice the orange and lemon, place them in a bowl and pour the syrup over the fruit slices. Marinate for at least 4 hours.
  2. Fill a large glass pitcher one-quarter full of ice. Add the marinated fruit, 1 cup of the syrup and the red wine. Stir well with a sangria stick or a wooden spoon and add soda water to taste. Serve in chilled wine glasses.

Tip

  • Peach slices, strawberries or other fruit in season may replace the orange and lemon.
