i think the best sangria in austin can be found on my back porch. i adapted this recipe from one in bon appetite, i think...it's swell.
1/2 cup white grape juice
6 tbsp. Licor 43 or Tuaca (I used Tuaca. The bottle of Licor 43 I found was about 60 years old.)
5 tbsp. brandy
2 tbsp. sugar
2 750-ml bottle of cava
1 cup sliced strawberries
Combine the first four ingredients in a large pitcher, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Add the strawberries and allow to sit for several hours or overnight. Add the two bottles of cava, stir to combine and serve over ice. Garnish with mint and strawberries.
