Yummy@Home Sangria

So sangria is definitely one of the easiest things to make - kind of like guacamole.

Since it's such a great summer drink, I thought I would just share with you my simple recipe.

Which basically consists of anything and everything!

I just use a really cheap red wine ($2.99 Chuck Shaw Cabernet from Trader Joe's) plus a lot of fruit.

Here you can totally mix and match whatever fruits to your own taste.
  • Get a really fun pitcher (it always tastes better in a fun pitcher, hehe)
  • Pour 1 bottle of red wine
  • 1 cup of lemonade
  • 1 orange cut into wedges - squeeze the juice and then drop in the wedges
  • 1 lime cut into wedges - same as above
  • 1 apple cut into small pieces
  • a handful of frozen blueberries
Let it sit overnight - 24 hours is better. Serve with plenty of ice, and some gingerale or seltzer water to add an extra bounce to it!

For a white sangria, I would just subsitute fruits like peaches and frozen mangoes.
