I made this Sangria for a party last weekend, after writing my original post on Roses, and it was a huge hit. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as I did. Recipe adapted from a food network recipe by Bobby Flay.
Mix everything in a large pitcher and store in the fridge overnight.
Serve over ice in a punch bowl or glass pitcher for best appearance.
Heat equal parts sugar and water on the stove over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Allow to cool before using.
For a fast easy simple syrup: Combine equal parts sugar and water in a bottle and shake until sugar dissolves.
This recipe can easily be halved it was used for a large party. However, it was gone in under 30 minutes so you may want to double it.
