What is Jaljeera?
Jaljeera? For all of you who are wondering what’s that, Jaljeera is a refreshing Indian Summer drink popularly known for it’s tangy flavour and rejuvenating and digestive properties. Jaljeera is made of two words, ‘Jal’ meaning and ‘Jeera’ meaning cumin in Hindi language. It’s traditionally a non-alcoholic drink made with the goodness of Jaljeera powder, mint, lemon, coriander mixed in water. However what better than to give this an alcoholic twist by adding it to on of my all time favourite cocktails – Red wine Sangria!
How do you make red wine Sangria?
Sangria is a sparkly,fruity drink with a refreshing kick, the more the fruits the merrier. There are thousands of versions of Red wine Sangria available on the internet. I am no expert but traditionally Red wine Sangria comprises of the following ingredients :
Good Red wine (Offcourse!)
Fruits (Chopped apples, oranges, berries, pineapple, lime etc)
Hard alcohol like Brandy, Gin or Rum (I prefer brandy anyday!)
Sweetener of your choice (I am not a fan of adding refined sugar to anything and have skipped this in my recipe)
If you want to make it fizzy, you can add sparkling water or soda to it right at the end and some ice cubes for chiling it.
So let’s get going! Make this boozy, fizzy, refreshing, tangy drink with the desi twist of Jaljeera powder and get your weekends rolling.
