Maharlika’s Red Sangria

If Sangria went on a tropical island vacation and came back with its hair beaded, this is what it would taste like. Served at New York City’s go-to spot for home-style Filipino food, Maharlika, it’s a big ol’ ball of red wine, lychee, mango and lemon juices, orange liqueur and its secret weapon: aged rum. Sure, this recipe makes a lot of Sangria, but we’d be surprised if you see leftovers if you serve it at your next party.
