Carmen’s Sangria


My friend Carmen is Spanish. That is how I came about acquiring this recipe. Carmen’s husband was in the Navy and while he was out to sea Carmen would show me how to make wonderful Spanish dishes. I will show you some Pincitos in another post. She also made the best flan, hands down. I would mow her lawn and she would promise me flan. Sometimes she would bring it over still warm from the oven. I didn’t care, I ate some before putting it in the refrigerator.  I have been to may restaurants that serve it and I have yet to find one that compares to hers.

But I digress.
Back to Carmen’s Sangria.
When ever I would have a family function, I would serve this.
I have a large family, there are six siblings in both mine and the Hubsters family.
So I make a really large batch for everyone to enjoy.

Note: You can use what ever fruit you like. I just wouldn’t suggest tomatoes. I haven’t used bananas either. I am not sure how they would turn out. I am just letting you know, this makes at least two liters, depending on how much fruit you add.

Peace be with you,
Veronica
