summer sangria

Entertaining, Spring/Summer StyleLaurenComment

I'm mixing things up this evening and posting a recipe that I re-created over the weekend. When I posted this pic of the sangria I made for a family cookout on Instagram yesterday and got multiple requests for the recipe, I figured the easiest way to share is here on the blog. If you love sangria like I do, this recipe is easy, perfect for hot weather and a crowd-pleaser! Screen Shot 2014-07-06 at 7.21.10 PM

 

I adapted the following recipe from this recipe, that I found on Pinterest.

Ingredients ::

  • red wine {I used Cab Sav, since that is what I had on hand} :: 1 large bottle {or could use two regular bottles and adapt recipe slightly to taste}
  • peach schnapps :: 3/4 cup
  • pomegranate juice :: 3/4 cup
  • fresh lemon juice from 2 fresh lemons {I just squeezed lemon juice into pitcher}
  • 1 bag frozen peaches
  • 1 bag frozen raspberries
  • 3/4 cup or so frozen pineapple chunks
  • oranges :: 2, sliced
  • 1 24 oz. bottle Sierra Mist {original reciped calls for raspberry flavored soda water or plain club soda}. I actually only used about 3/4 of the 24 oz. bottle and recommend tasting as you pour!}

Directions ::

Step 1 :: Mix red wine, peach schnapps, pomegranate juice, fresh lemon juice, peaches, raspberries and pineapple in a large pitcher.

Step 2 :: Cover and refrigerate overnight. {I let my batch soak for 48 hours for maximum flavor!}

Step 3 :: Add orange slices and soda the morning before serving, and allow to soak another 3+ hours.

Step 4 :: Pour into glasses, over ice, when ready to serve. Garnish with frozen rasperries and orange slices. Enjoy!

Cheers to summer!
