Peter Salerno’s Family Recipe for Sangria

Peter Salerno’s Family Recipe for Sangria

The Perfect Homemade Family Summer Sangria Recipe

Peter Salerno isn’t just a master kitchen designer, he loves spending time in his own kitchen entertaining family, friends and guests. This love of cooking and creating recipes filters up and down the Salerno family for generations, and has produced some time-tested, delicious recipes.

When Peter Salerno married his wife Tracy, she brought with her a wealth of delicious recipes, cocktails and other “secret family recipes”. Tracy’s father, Mike Cavallo, was a master of many of these – but one of the family’s favorite creations from Mr. Cavallo was his famous sangria.

What makes the “Cavallo family sangria” recipe so delicious? It might be the perfect mix of ingredients, or the use of brandy and triple sec at the base. Or it may just be the special amount of love with which Mike made it.

In any event, it’s a sangria recipe that’s sure to please, and we’re sharing it with you. It’s the perfect summer sangria recipe for entertaining guests!

Mike Cavallo’s Perfect Summer Sangria Recipe

Ingredients

  • 7Up/Sprite
  • Triple Sec
  • inexpensive brandy (something like christian bros)
  • a bottle of cheap red wine (barefoot works) either merlot or shiraz
  • ice
  • oranges (you can add apples and pears as well)

Preparation

  • Fill a *large* pitcher with whole slices of orange (leave the peels on), use a wooden spoon to press on the oranges to get a little bit of juice at the bottom.
  • Fill a 1/3 of the pitcher with ice
  • Pour even parts 7Up/Sprite and wine (pouring both at the same time is the easiest way) until 2/3 of the way filled
  • Pour equal parts brandy and triplesec to taste (usually about 1/2 -2/3 a cup)
  • Fill remaining with the rest of the wine
  • Stir and let sit for 10 minutes in the refrigerator
  • Enjoy!
If it comes out too strong for you, it can be diluted by adding more soda.
DON’T add sugar, citrus fruits (lime, lemon, pineapple), or bitters!

We Love and Honor Father Jim Kelly!

It is a rare gift in life to know someone who is not flesh and blood but that you still consider family. For Peter Salerno and his family, Father Jim Kelly is one of these special treasures.

Throughout much of Peter and Tracy Salerno’s lives, Father Jim Kelly has been a part of their “extended family”. From spiritual guidance and personal companionship, to religious services and heart-to-heart conversations, Father Jim has been an integral figure in the lives of the Salerno family. Father Jim and Peter, along with other friends, worked in Zimbabwe during the HIV/AIDS pandemic. It was an eye- and heart-opening experience for all involved.

More recently, Father Jim has presided over the weddings of both of Peter and Tracy’s children, as Anthony married his wife Eve and Gabrielle married her husband Bryan. He has also been a constant comfort through more difficult times, such as a recent passing in the Salerno family.

Through good times and difficult ones, celebrations and solemn occasions, Peter Salerno and his family have received the greatest of guidance, love and friendship from Father Jim Kelly. Always ready with a warm embrace, a clever joke or timely advice, those who know Father Jim know him to be a man of joy.

It is with pride, honor and a great deal of love that Peter, Tracy, and the entire Salerno family celebrate Father Jim Kelly and his 50 years of service to the church. Thank you, Father Jim, for being such a dear part of our lives.

Here’s to the continuation of a wonderful journey and friendship!
