This Sangria requires a little bit of time to make, but is deliciously worth it.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • One 4-inch cinnamon stick
  • 1 banana, peeled and broken into pieces
  • 1 lemon, sliced thin
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1 bottle (750 milliliters) red wine
  • 2-3 cups sliced fruit (oranges, limes, peaches,)

Directions

  1. Mix together the sugar, water and cinnamon stick over medium heat. Stir until clear and syrupy. Add the banana and lemon. Bring to a boil and cook, without stirring, for 5 minutes. Remove and allow to cool.
  2. Use a fine sieve to strain the mixture into a large pitcher. Mix in the juice and wine. Finally, add the fruit. Serve very cold over ice in a tall glass.
