Friday Cocktails: Zobo Sangria

by on September 30, 2016
 

I’m sooooooooo looking forward to the weekend and Zobo seems ready to ‘party’ with me, regardless of where and how.

Its flavours ,’floral and berries’ are perfect for alcoholic mixers – whether that be with wine or spirits. This recipe is the best of both worlds – wine and spirits and fruit :). When combined to make Zobo, it creates a complex drink with lots of character and not much effort.

Zobo sangria with apples, oranges, agbalumo rum, brown sugar from my Mauritius stash from my love, @kecyfa and candied tangelo . . #eatdrinklagos #lunchclub #zobo #Nigeriandrinks #cocktails #hibiscus #NewNigerianKitchen #NewNigerianCuisine #Nigeriancuisin

Sangria (English /sæŋˈɡriːə/, Portuguese pronunciation: [sɐ̃ˈɡɾi.ɐ]; Spanish: sangría [saŋˈɡɾi.a]) is an alcoholic beverage of Spanish origin. A punch, the sangria traditionally consists of red wine and chopped fruit, often with other ingredients such as orange juice or brandy; Source – Wikipedia

Typically made overnight – giving the various additions time to ‘mull’ and marry, I approached mine like so:

I combined fresh apples, oranges, Agbalumo bitters (with rum), brown sugar, candied Tangelo and a touch of red wine.

This I chilled overnight. To serve, I simply decanted into carafes, fruit and all. It went very well with a New Nigerian Kitchen Nose-to-Tail menu for Eat.Drink.Lagos’s Lunchclub XIV

Talk about delicious, and refreshing – sweet, fruity, fresh and a touch heady. What’s not to love?

Have an awesome weekend.
