I love fruity mixed drinks, and this is the best to get you in the festive mood for Tu B’shvat. There are a million ways to make sangria, so don’t be afraid to use whatever fruits and wines you have on hand. It is best to let the mix sit for a day, giving the fruit the chance to soak up the wine and giving the wine a chance to sweeten from the fruits’ natural flavors. It is best to use a glass pitcher (so everyone can see your beautiful creation!) with an open spout and a wide mouth. This way, fruit will pour into the glasses with the wine, and your guests can use a large spoon to fish out all the tasty treats in the drink. This one from Anthropologie is really beautiful, and you can buy matching glasses to go with it.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle dry red wine (I like using a cheap cabernet or merlot like this one from kosherwine.com)
  • 1/4 cup brandy ( Since brandy is distilled from wine, it must have proper hashgacha. There are a couple of kosher types available, Herzog and Carmel make good ones that are not too expensive.
  • 1 bunch grapes
  • 1/4 pineapple
  • 1 orange
  • 1 apple
  • 2 fresh figs
  • strawberries (optional)
  • cinnamon sticks (optional)

Preparation

Preparation

Pour the bottle of wine into the pitcher, add the brandy. Cut up the grapes, apple, and figs into really small pieces. Wash the outside of the orange, cut in half, and then slice thin half-wedges. Dump the fruit into the pitcher and give it a stir with a large wooden spoon. Place in the refrigerator until ready to serve. The longer it stays in there, the more flavor it will get!
