I love wine. That’s no secret. But sometimes a girl needs to switch things up a bit, you know?
My friend, Kristin, was over the other night and she was talking about this sangria she’d recently enjoyed at a party. It sounded absolutely delicious. And she was kind enough to share the recipe.
I made it last night. And oh my, it’s heaven in a pitcher.
What you need:
1 bottle of red wine (Pinot Noir or Merlot or similar)
1 cup of vodka
1 cup of juice (I used Cranberry, but seriously any juice will work—pick your favorite)
1 nectarine, pitted and sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 orange, sliced
1 granny smith apple (or any kind of apple really)
1 cup of raspberries
1 cup of pitted cherries (totally optional)
Mix the above ingredients in a pitcher. What’s great is the fruit soaks up the alcohol so when you eat it later it bursts with flavor!
Chill the sangria in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. Just before serving, add club soda or for a little more sweetness, Sprite.
Stir it up and SERVE!
Make sure you get some slices of fruit in your glass. Enjoy!
