Three easy sangria recipes you can try – from traditional to rosé wine | The Sun

THE holidays might be nearing an end but you can keep that carefree spirit going with a sundowner.

Sangria is a refreshing, summery blend of wine and fruit that can be made with a number of different flavours.

It is also the perfect way to use up fruit that has seen better days.

Here are some easy recipes you can try.

REDDY TO GO: For a traditional Sangria take a bottle of red wine — Pinot Noir is best but you can use any cheap alternative you can find.

Asda has Nice Drop Pinot Noir for £3.99. Mix the wine with 200ml of brandy, a litre of orange juice, a litre of lemonade, a sliced lemon and orange and ice.

Aldi sells Baron Amarillo Sangria for £2.99 for a litre, but you’ll get more for your money by mixing up your own and to save cash you can leave out the brandy if needs be.

ALL WHITE: Use white wine for a light and fresh twist on the classic recipe. Any cheap white will do.

Sainsbury’s has Wild Valley white wine for £3.29 a bottle. Mix with fresh raspberries, a sliced lemon and lime, a handful of fresh mint leaves, 250ml of Aldi’s Aqua Vale sparkling lemon and lime flavoured water (45p) or similar supermarket alternative.

Use a wooden spoon to mash the fruit slightly and combine the ingredients and add ice.

Morrisons has the Straw Hat Lush And Fruity Rosé for £3.08. Mix a bottle with chopped summer fruit, like nectarines, peaches, strawberries, raspberries or a combination.

Add the juice of an orange, or any orange juice you have in the fridge.

Add 50ml of a citrus liqueur like Grand Marnier or Limoncello, but you can leave this out to keep costs down.

Top up with 300ml sparkling water and throw in a handful of fresh mint, plus ice.
