Brazilian Sangria Cocktail Recipe

The Brazilian sangria recipe is one of the best you will ever try. You can fill it with the fruit of your choice, cachaça, brandy, red wine, and – here’s the kicker – absinthe. In spite of all of the sangria recipes on the internet, this recipe stands out as being one of the most creative and tasting it is an experience. As a big party punch, sangria is an excellent choice. Although brands like brandy have been traditionally added to sangria to give it more punch, substituting other flavors opens up a wide array of possibilities.

The recipe comes from Lucid Absinthe Supérieure and definitely takes a new approach to sangria. In this drink, the red wine is only used as a float rather than the main ingredient, so it’s served by the glass rather than by the punch bowl. It likes Brazilian cachaça more than other styles of rum, though it pairs that with Spanish brandy, so you get both liquors in one drink, which you typically get with one liquor or the other. In this sangria, fruit is a large component, as it is in all sangrias, but you have control over adding which fruits to include. Take advantage of this aspect, such as hunting down the freshest or most interesting fruit in the produce section at any given moment. This drink is guaranteed to please, and you’ll be able to mix it up several times to get a different taste each time.
