TIME: 10 mins plus 8 to 24 hours resting time
1) Warm up (on medium heat) 100ml of the wine in a sauce pan (Do not boil!).
Add the sugar and the cinnamon. Stir gently for 2-3 mins with a wooden spoon and remove from heat.
2) Pour this wine mixture into a 1 litre glass jug, and add on the remaining wine
3) Peel all fruits(except for the orange) and de-core those fruits that need it. Chop them all (and slice the orange) in 1 square inch size squares (roughly) and add them to the wine in the jug.
4) Rest, ideally over night. If not possible, at least for 8 hours.
* Serve cold or with ice]
– Use a glass jug. Never use a plastic jug for alcoholic drinks, as they sometimes take the plastic taste.
– Some people also adds on a little bity of brandy or another spirit to the Sangria. Well: it never was part of the traditional Spanish Sangria!. I personally rather not adding any, but if you do, do not use more than 25ml.
– If you do not have caster sugar, then use normal granulated sugar. Just spread the sugar over a flat surface, on baking paper, pass a rolling pin over it a few times and it will be as good as caster sugar.
