Martini & Rossi Torino Sangria

May 1, 2012 

(NAPS)-One way to discover the meaning of “gioia di vivere,” Italian for “joy of living,” is to mix up a pitcher of Sangria.

The blend of aromatic herbs and spices in Martini & Rossi vermouth does the work of adding all the flavor, while fresh fruits serve as the finishing touch that will liven up any warm-weather bash.

• 1 (750 ml) bottle of Martini & Rossi Extra Dry vermouth
• 2 cups (16 oz.) cranberry juice cocktail
• 1/2 cup (4 oz.) brandy (optional)
• 1/2 cup sugar
• 2 cups (16 oz.) sparkling water
• 2 oranges, thinly sliced into wheels
• 1 lemon, thinly sliced into wheels
• 1 lime, thinly sliced into wheels

Combine Martini & Rossi Extra Dry vermouth, cranberry juice, brandy and sugar in a large pitcher; stir until sugar is dissolved. Chill until ready to serve. Stir in sliced fruit and sparkling water. Serve over ice. (Makes 8 servings)
