In Spain, Sangría is mostly drank in summer, since it is very refreshing and it has a low percentage of alcohol.
If you want to surprise your guests with an exotic dessert, this sangría cheesecake is a great option!
Step 1: Ingredients
For the cheesecake:
-150 gr (5 oz) of plain/butter cookies.
-150gr (5 oz) of butter.
-200ml (7 fl oz) of cream.
-Flavorless Jell-o (Enough to make a pint and a half).
-250gr (1/2 lb) of cream cheese (Philadelphia).
For the Sangría:
-1 cup of sugar.
-Fruit (I used an apple, a pear and an orange)
-Juices/sodas (I used pineapple juice and orange soda)
Step 2: Make Sangria
First, put in a bowl or another recipient half a pint of red wine and a a cup of sugar and stir until it disolves. Then add half a pint of orange soda and half a pint of juice and stirr well again.
Finally, cut the fruit in pieces and put it in the wine. Let it settle for about 15 minutes and you are done!
Step 3: Make the crust
- First, grind the cookies untill they are practically reduced to dust.
-Then, put them in a saucepan, add the butter and heat the mix while you stir it until the butter is completely melted and you get an homogenous pastry.
-Finally, cover the base of your springform pan with the mix and let it cool for a bit. It's a good idea to put the pan in the fridge for a while, so the crust gets harder.
