Have you ever heard of a strawberry sangria? This is a perfect drink for spring and summer whenever you are chilling out in our terrace or you are having an an al fresco meal.
The ingredients are simple and are available in spring and in summer. If you are staying at Casita Sitges there is a fantastic fruit and vegetable shop just across the street where you can find the ingredients.
Here is the recipe for the Strawberry Sangria:
Ingredients: 800 gr. fresh strawberries, 600 gr. fresh kiwi, 3 table spoon of sugar, 3 fresh oranges, half cup of water, half cup of rum, 1 bottle of white wine such as verdejo or sauvignon blanc from Rueda, 1 bottle of cava brut nature.
Chop 400gr. of strawberries, put it in a pot with sugar and water. Boil it and keep it on the stove till the strawberries have melted. Turn the gas off and drain to have a smooth liquid. Cool it into the fridge.
Peel off and cut the kiwi into slices. Cut the remaining strawberries and put it with the kiwi into a jug. Add the cold strawberry extract you have formerly prepared. Add the rum, the entire bottle of white wine, squeeze the juice of the organges and let all rest into the fridge for at least 4 hours. When ready to serve fill the jar with the cava, stir and serve, guaranteed success!
