Make This Weekend: Strawberry Sangria

by | Entertaining, Make this Weekend, Series, Sips | 3 comments

Summer and Sangria go hand in had for me.  Really I like a good Sangria any time.  None of that stuff in a bottle for me.  It’s fine for a floater on a Frozen Margarita but homemade is truly best.

Here is my favorite Sangria.  I’ve made it twice this summer already.

Making Strawberry Sangria

5.0 from 1 reviews
Strawberry Sangria
 
Ingredients
  • 1 c sugar
  • ½ c fresh orange juice, chilled
  • ½ c fresh lemon juice, chilled
  • ½ c strawberry puree (blend fresh strawberries in your blender or Vitamix)
  • ¼ c brandy
  • 1 bottle Cabernet Savignon or Merlot, chilled
  • 10 oz Club Soda, chilled
  • ½ c sliced strawberries
  • ½ of an orange, sliced thinly
  • **Note: Use fresh squeezed juices. It really tastes much better. Never that pre-made Real Lemon! I buy it at Whole Foods when I'm making a large quantity but it's really not that hard to squeeze this amount for a single batch.
Instructions
  1. Place sugar, orange juice and lemon juice in a large pitcher.
  2. Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  3. Add remaining ingredients and stir.
  4. Pour over ice in a high boy or large wine glass.
  5. Enjoy!

 

Megan_Weaver_05Add the sugar to the pitcher.  I love using glass because it is so pretty with the fruit floating in it at the end.

Megan_Weaver_07Next the juices.

Megan_Weaver_06Then the red wine then club soda.  (I was a little brave to wear my favorite white dress from J.Crew but I was expecting guests any minute!)

Megan_Weaver_10Add your fruit and give a final stir.

Megan_Weaver_13I served this Strawberry Sangria and my White Peach and Basil Sangria at a party this weekend.  I’ll share it with you soon.
