I usually associate a pear-based sangria with white wine. So the pear filled “Harvest Sangria” at the New Orleans Red Fish Grill, came with a surprise. When the drink arrived, it it was more ruby-colored than pale.

It was then I learned that the Temparillo, the wine in this, was a dry red wine from Spain. And it helped make a completely delightful drink. 

Some ingredients

I hastily jotted down the description which read “Fresh pears, Temparillo, apple brandy, clove, citrus”. This might be something I’d have to try at home.

Alas, I should have paid more attention to the nuances of the flavor. And to the presentation. All I remember is that it was delicious. And it looked lovely with the diced pears adorning the glass.

Served

So when my Sunday blogging group decided to do Sangrias, I knew I’d be using this as an indirect inspiration.

I did a little research on how to get some clove flavor in and ended up deciding I needed to do a simple syrup. Muddling apparently doesn’t work with cloves.

In the end my “I don’t like Sangria” daughter and husband were also happy to have a glass. And that’s the real win!

    I love the sound of this sangria, Inger. When I read “late harvest“ I thought you were talking about the wine itself and thought The recipe was using a dessert wine. Taking us away for midwinter sipping!

      Though ultimately sweet in the end with the spiced syrup! I used the term late harvest figuring we are long past the harvest here, but the pears and apples hang on to remind us.

    I love that you recreated this from a restaurant recipe. I never think to write down these things. The layers of flavor here sound like I’d be enjoying more than a glass or too.

      My husband and oldest daughter like things so much sweeter than I do that Sangria is just about our only common ground. Hooray for that!

      You know I was thinking that this could be a nice holiday beverage in a warmer climate where mulled wine might now work as well…
