Jamie Oliver recently shared a “super easy” recipe to make a Spanish sangria in under 10 minutes. “Embrace balmy summer days with a jug of sangria. With red wine, Spanish brandy, sparkling water, cinnamon and chopped fruit, it’s a lovely sharing cocktail,” he said.


Two oranges, chopped

Two pears, chopped

Two lemons, one chopped, one juiced

200g red berries, chopped

Three tbsp caster sugar

One tsp cinnamon


750ml bottle light red wine

100ml Spanish brandy

300ml sparkling water


Put the chopped fruit in a bowl and sprinkle over the sugar and cinnamon, then stir to coat. Cover and leave to macerate in the fridge for at least one hour, or ideally overnight.

Fill a large jug with ice. Stir the macerated fruit mixture to ensure the sugar is dissolved, then tip into the jug with the wine and brandy. Stir, then top up with the sparkling water and serve.

Jamie Oliver also shared how to make a different version of the drink which he called “Sangria Latina”.

“Written to celebrate the 50th issue of Jamie Magazine, this is a lovely way to cool down on a hot summer’s day,” his website stated. How can you make it?
