Triple Citrus Sangria with Red Wine

Triple Citrus Sangria | EatSomethingSexy.comDiane Brown, author of The Seduction Cookbook and our Diva Dish maven of dining for two gave us this recipe for citrus sangria from her Family Farm Box blog.

She used California’s summer Valencia oranges to make this tart, tangy and refreshing treat. We love the layers of aphrodisiacs in this drink, including: cinnamon; citrus; brandy and, of course, the red wine. The recipe also works well with spring citrus as a cocktail bridge between the winter and summer months. A pitcher makes enough Triple Citrus Sangria for an evening for four, or eight servings if you’re using it as a cocktail.
