Spicy Sangria Recipe
Make a Cinco De Mayo batch of this wine cocktail
Sangria is typically a red wine–based cocktail with a little brandy, some chopped fruit, lots of ice, and sugar. However, the modern-day versions can include any number of wine and fruit combos, from Viognier and peaches to Champagne and blueberries. This version is hotter than most, thus the name—I call it the Sangria Scorcher—but we're sure Food Republic fans can handle the heat. Happy Cinco de Mayo!
- In a tall glass, muddle the chile pepper.
