On a hot muggy night in Chicago, we decided that we were going to rent an old musical and watch it out on our balcony. What compliments “Summer Stock” better than “SCD Sangria”? I adapted an easy Sangria recipe that I found online and it turned out delicious. I used the fruits I had on hand but think you could substitute others with a lot of success and a slightly different flavor. I love stone fruit so I picked nectarines along with the citrus fruits.
1 bottle dry red wine (I picked a Cabernet Sauvignon by flipflop, yay cheap wine!)
4 cups club soda
1 cup SCD legal apple juice
1/2 cup honey (I mixed it with 1/4 cup hot water so it would blend easily)
1 lemon, sliced and squeezed and put at the bottom
1 lime, , sliced and squeezed and put at the bottom
1 orange, sliced and squeezed and put at the bottom
1 nectarine, sliced and put at the bottom
Ice for serving
Mix it together! For best results, refrigerate so the fruit juices can seep in for 24 hours. But if you’re too eager to wait, pour over ice and serve!
