Happy Friday | Sangria!

Happy Friday! Summer is not over and in the spirit of having summer last as long as possible I’m sharing my favorite sangria recipe. I love, love, LOVE this sangria! Just as a tip, don’t spend much on the wine. I like to stop at Trader Joe’s and pick up a few bottles from their selection (read: two buck chuck 😉 ). If you’re in the mood for a white fruity wine or a rosé instead; add extra strawberries and peaches to the mix.

Sweet Summer Sangria

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bottle cabernet sauvignon
  • 1 Lemon, cut into wedges
  • 1 Orange, cut into wedges
  • 1 Lime, cut into wedges
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • Splash of Orange Juice
  • 2 Shots of gin or triple sec
  • 1 Cup of raspberries or strawberries
  • 1 Small can diced pineapples, with juice
  • 4 Cups ginger ale
Pour wine in a pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges and pineapple then add sugar, orange juice and gin. Chill overnight.
Add ginger ale, berries and ice just before serving. I like to use froze raspberries and add to each glass before serving.
Enjoy!
