This is a nice alternative to red or white sangria. For this recipe, I personally buy a big 1.5 liter bottle of St. Genevieve Red Wine, which is widely available if you live in Texas, and quite inexpensive. Otherwise any dry red wine will do. The orange juice and the sugar make this sangria flavorful and sweet, but not overpowering.
In a bowl, using a spoon, mash the sugar into the orange peel so the sugar absorbs the oils. Stir in the orange juice, wine and Cointreau. Cover and chill for 15 minutes.
Remove the orange peel with a slotted spoon or strainer. Chill well. Serve sangria in a pitcher, garnished with reserved orange slices. Add ice cubes to individual servings, if desired.
Makes 6 one-cup servings.
