Recipe: Grilled sangria

  • Not my recipe, but one I plan to try this weekend. If you're not familiar with his work, Steve Raichlen is the truth.

    • 1 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 oranges, cut in half and seeded
    • 2 lemons, cut in half and seeded
    • 2 limes, cut in half and seeded
    • 4 cinnamon sticks, each about 3 inches long
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar, or to taste
    • 1 cup rum
    • 3 bottles prosecco (Italian sparkling wine) or other sparkling wine
    • Sprigs of fresh mint, for serving
    • Ice, for serving

    Step 1: Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to high. Ideally, you’ll grill over a wood fire.

    Step 2: Brush and oil the grill grate. Place the granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl. Dip the cut sides of the citrus fruits in the sugar, then grill cut sides down until the sugar caramelizes and the fruit is darkly browned, 3 to 4 minutes. Grill the cinnamon sticks until lightly toasted. Transfer the fruit and cinnamon to a cutting board and let cool.

    Step 3: Dice the fruit into 1-inch pieces. Place in the bowl with the granulated sugar. Stir in the cinnamon sticks and brown sugar and muddle with a pestle or wooden spoon. Stir in the rum and let macerate for 10 minutes.

    Step 4: Stir the prosecco into the fruit mixture. Correct the seasoning, adding sugar to taste. Ladle the sangria into ice-filled glasses and garnish with sprigs of fresh mint.

  • Now that sounds good.
