Diane’s Secret Sangria Recipe
Okay, so probably not so secret anymore. Diane cuts hair at Jim’s Barber Shop in the plaza next to Cranberry Liquors. She kept coming in this summer and purchasing an odd assortment of ingredients — enough so I asked her exactly what she was doing with them.
Diane explained herself by describing several friends-and-family events where she made this awesome sangria. Here now, submitted for your approval, is the heretofore unpublished recipe for Diane’s Secret Sangria.
2 oranges, sliced
2 lemons, sliced
2 limes, sliced
1 small jar, maraschino cherries
1 4-liter jug of Carlo Rossi Burgundy (Red)
1 4-liter jug of Carlo Rossi Chablis (White)
1 cup fresh lemon juice
1-1/3 cups orange juice
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups Triple Sec
2 cups Gran Gala Orange Liqueur
1 liter Polar Orange Dry Soda
Mix all of the ingredients above (except for the orange soda) and put in the fridge overnight.
Just before serving, add the liter of Polar Soda. Serve in a festive punch bowl or pitcher and have a pair of tongs at the ready to retrieve fruit for individual servings. Enjoy!
