It’s Sangria Season!

sangria

This sangria is PACKED with different fruits. It’s actually quite healthy, I’m not kidding. It’s incredibly easy to make, and tastes like summer.  Great to serve at a party or BBQ.  Be sure to cut all the fruit into bite-size, edible pieces. I know the citrus rind looks pretty in the pitcher, but we prepared all the fruit to be easily picked up with a spoon and eaten. We should’ve named this ‘drunken fruit salad’. But that’s how we like it.

Super fruity sangria (serves 8)

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 liter bottle of Real Sangria brand wine
  • 5-6 strawberries
  • 1 small cantaloupe
  • 1 small bunch of grapes
  • 3 small apples
  • 2 oranges

Directions:

1) Cut all the fruit into bite-size pieces.  No rind from the oranges, but you can leave the apple peels on.

2) Add fruit into large pitcher, add wine. Serve chilled.

    Hi Nora! Sangria is great that way, in that you can incorporate all your favorite fruits! I don’t like cantaloupe at all, but it acts like a sponge absorbing all the great wine flavors, and tastes better to me that way!

  3. This sounds great! My own secret weapon is guava paste, since the wonderful folks at Victor’s in NYC gave me the tip.

  4. Sangria, one of my favourite summer cocktails! It looks delicious and refreshing, will try it soon!

  5. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!

    crankycheryl – guava paste eh? I have to try that sometime.

    Mathilde’s Cuisine – Thank you, it is refreshing. I love how the sangria soaks up into all the fruit, especially into something porous like canteloupe.

    Duo Dishes – haha
