Sangría is a summer delight! Full of bright fruit flavors, this light wine cocktail is the perfect thing for a summer day. And our rustic sangría pitcher is the perfect serving piece for this classic Spanish drink.
Each beautiful sangría pitcher is hand thrown by potters in Spain to create its classic shape. The spout is pinched so that the all of the fruit and ice will not tumble into your glass. It is coated with a durable, clear food-safe glaze to keep the ceramic clean and waterproof. This terra cotta pitcher is substantial, and it keeps the sangría cool even on hot summer days on the patio!
Summer in Spain can be roasting hot, so it is no surprise that the Spanish invented the most refreshing summer cocktail. Here is our favorite recipe:
TRADITIONAL SANGRÍA (Four Servings)
1 bottle Spanish red wine
1/4 cup of orange juice
1/4 cup of orange liqueur (optional), such as Gran Marnier or Cointreau
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 cup of chilled soda water
Sliced apples, oranges, limes and whatever fruit you enjoy
Combine the wine with the orange juice, liqueur and fruit. Refrigerate for at least an hour, ideally overnight. Add chilled soda water and a small amount of ice right before serving.
