Sangria is a great addition to any day whether celebrating the end of the week, hosting a girls night or simply having a staycation, sangria is a versatile, easy win. I love that you can add virtually any fruit to truly make this drink your own. It can me made ahead of time if you are hosting something within a few hours, and will last a couple of days in the fridge. I made this quick win with fruit I had on hand, and can’t wait to try other combinations! And of course you can always eat the fruit in your glass for an added bonus. While traditionally sangria is made with wine and brandy, I’m a big fan of trying out other liquors, or even a combination of a couple if you are feeling adventurous and empowered. Check out my recipe below.
1 bottle of white wine (table one or preferred mix)
1 cup of sliced grapes
1 orange sliced
1 lime sliced
2 sprigs of mint (orange or any preferred)
1/2 cup of tequila ( or 1/4 tequila and 1/4 gin or vodka)
- Rinse and slice fruit and add to a pitcher. Muddle gently with the back of a spoon or muddled.
- Add mint, top with wine and liquor. Stir and refrigerate until ready to enjoy.
