Happy Friday! I thought this was the perfect time to share my my recipe for the best sangria ever with your because, well – it’s Friday and it’s officially summertime. It *might* not be the best recipe ever but I have tried a bunch, ahem, and this one is my favorite. Plus it’s super easy to make. I know sangria can be enjoyed all year round but something about summertime and sangria just go together. It’s a great drink for a party or large group – or mix up a batch for no reason and you’ll find an excuse to finish it. don’t judge me.
THE BEST SANGRIA EVER:
- 1 bottle red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot)
- 1 of each: lemon, orange, & lime, cut into wedges
- 2 T sugar
- splash of OJ
- 2 shots Triple Sec
- 1 C raspberries and/or blueberries
- 1 small can of diced pineapples with the juice
- 4 C ginger ale
- mint sprigs for garnish
Pour wine into pitcher (with cover), squeeze fruit of the lemon, orange, and lime and throw the remains in. Add the pineapple, sugar, OJ and Triple Sec. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale and berries just before serving. Works best to serve in an open pitcher to get the fruit when pouring. Top each glass with a sprig of mint.
