The sun is shining and the evenings are getting longer which can only mean one thing…it is time for SANGRIA! Our favourite sunny Spanish tipple is the perfect way to wind down a romantic evening. But here at Hero & Leander we like to do things with a twist- so with that in mind we have come up with a delicious twist on the traditional sangria recipe, adding Acai liqueur and apricot juice. So what are you waiting for? Dust off that old red in the cupboard and get mixing!
