Preparation time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 12 minutes

Ingredients

Serves: 4 people

  • 4 - Cardamom Pods
    crushed open
  • 2 - Cinnamon Stick
  • 4 - Cloves
    whole
  • 250 ml Port
  • 500 ml Red Wine
    dry
  • 3 tbsp SuperValu Brown Sugar
    soft
  • 0 - SuperValu Fresh Mint
    to serve
  • 2 - SuperValu Signature Tastes Classic Espresso Capsule
    used for thick strips of rind (peeled with a vegetable peeler)
  • 500 ml SuperValu Signature Tastes Clemengold
    juice

Method

  1. Place all the ingredients in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
  2. Bring to just below boiling point and allow to simmer gently for 8-10 minutes. Take care not to boil too rapidly as it may become bitter.
  3. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Serve with lots of ice, mint and extra slices of ClemenGold.

 

Tips

1. The mixture can be made in advance, as the flavour from the spices will develop and become more prominent.

2. In winter, serve this like a glühwein. Simmer as above, but serve hot in glasses with extra slices of ClemenGold.

3. If preferred, dilute the sangria by adding 500 ml (2 cups) soda water or ginger ale. Add vodka, gin or rum to taste, if preferred.

4. Add a couple of slices of fresh ginger to the wine mixture and simmer as above.
