Sangria Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Sangria which belongs to the Beverages recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1-liter bottle of dry red wine?burgundy, merlot, or the like (You can
  2. use the cheap stuff!)
  3. cup (16 g) Splenda
  4. teaspoon orange extract
  5. teaspoon lemon extract
  6. 1 orange
  7. 1 lemon
  8. 1 lime
  9. Orange-or lemon-flavored unsweetened sparkling water

Cooking Instructions

Pour the wine into a nonreactive bowl.

Stir in the Splenda and the extracts.

Now, you have to decide if you're going to serve your sangria from a punch bowl or put it into a clean old jug.

Me, I put it in an old 1-gallon (3.

8 L) vinegar jug, but I was taking my sangria camping.

If you're going to put your sangria in a punch bowl, simply scrub your fruit and slice it as thin as humanly possible.

Put it in the punch bowl with the wine/Splenda mixture and let the whole thing macerate for an hour or so before serving.

If you're using a jug, you'll need to cut your fruit into small chunks that will fit through the neck.

Force the fruit into the jug and then pour the wine/Splenda mixture over it.

Again, let it macerate for at least an hour.

When the time comes to serve your sangria, fill a tall glass with ice, pour in 4 ounces (120 ml) of the wine mixture, and fill to the top with lemon-or orange-flavored sparkling water.
