Curio’s Summer Spiced Sangria

Curio’s Summer Spiced Sangria

Serves 8-10.

Our spiced sangria is a summer favorite! This kit allows you to make a party beverage with amazing flavor — the spices add sparkle and depth to create a memorable sangria. We suggest using Rioja or Pinot Noir.

Make the spiced concentrate Put the entire bag of Summer Sangria Spice into a heat-proof container. Stir in 2 cups hot water and 1/4 cup honey or maple syrup. Steep for 30 minutes to 1 hour. 

Make the sangria Strain the spiced concentrate into a pitcher; discard the spice solids.

Add 1 bottle red wine, 1/2 cup brandy, and 2 cups orange juice to the pitcher and stir to combine. Add 4 cups of cut fruit (your choice; cherries, oranges, raspberries, peaches, etc.). Let rest in the fridge for 4–6 hours and serve over ice!

For a sweeter version, increase the honey or syrup to 1/2 cup.

    Hi again, Anita.

    Correction. Don’t add ice to the pitcher until you’re ready to serve! Sorry!

    Hi, Anita!

    Susan from the Curio kitchen, here. I haven’t tried this, but here’s where I’d start

    Boil 3 cups water with 1/2 cup sweetner. Add 3 black tea bags plus the pouch of spices. Set off the heat. Pull the tea bags out after 6 minutes. Leave the rest to steep for 30 minutes.

    Strain the concentrate into a pitcher with ice and stir in 2 cups OJ. TASTE … You may need to dilute further with more water or adjust sweetener.. You could add a cup of apple juice.

    Add 4 cups fruit (chopped peaches, nectarines, plums, pitted sweet cherries, etc. Chill for 4 hours. Serve over.

    Let me know how you make out!
