Sangria – The Official Drink Of Summer!

As much as I love to end each day with a glass of wine (or four), I also love to jazz it up a bit on occasion! Sometimes I experiment and make the recipes up myself, and sometimes I just outright steal them. Please note that I personally sell many of the wines featured on this page. This is one of the ways I am able to bring you this blog and keep my own cellar filled with vino! There, happy FTC? Big Brother Bastard!

This post has a sister page, Sangria and More – When Wine Just Isn’t Quite Enough that will grow as I add more recipes I think are worth sharing.

In the meantime, what is YOUR favorite sangria recipe? Please send it to me using the form at the bottom of the page and I might just add it to this page.

Don’t forget to SHARE this post with all of you wine-loving, sangria-swilling friends! Hey, it might be a big hit at Wine Club! Cheers!

  4. Ice, for serving
  5. Mandarin organges for garnish

In a large pitcher, mix the white wine with the fresh orange juice and Campari. Refrigerate until chilled , about 2 hours or overnight. Fill tall glasses with ice, pour the cocktail over the ice, add garnish if you’re feeling fancy and serve. Breakfast of Champions! Have a GRAPE Day!

10313121/2 cup peach schnapps

1/4 cup white sugar
4 oranges, sliced into rounds
2 mangos, peeled and sliced
4 (750 milliliter) bottles dry white wine, chilled

Wine Cosmo
Malibu-Island-Cosmo
1 bottle Fissata Sparkling Red Dessert Wine or Double Date Rose
3/4 to 1 cup Vodka (taste first) – Preferably a Raspberry Vodka or something similar
Juice of two limes
Lime slices/wedges – who really cares?
Optional – Raspberries

Combine first three ingredients in large pitcher. Float the slices/wedges and raspberries.
If you really want to be fancy, serve in a martini glass.

Blackberry Vodka Sangria
Great combo of blackberries and red wine!

1 cup fresh blackberries
1 cup water
3 tablespoons sugar (or more to taste)
1 bottle sweet red wine (such as Double Date)
½ cup Blackberry Vodka (such as Pinnacle)
orange slices, lime slices, and/or fresh blackberries

Place 1 cup blackberries, water, and sugar in small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, simmer about 10-15 minutes or until blackberries are very soft.
Strain liquid several times and discard fruit. Pour into pitcher. Add wine and vodka. Add orange slices, lime slices, and blackberries as desired. Cover and refrigerate at least a few hours but overnight is desired.
Serve over ice and garnish with additional fruit as desired.
Notes

TIPS: Adjust fruit, sugar, and wine as desired for personal taste. I used 1 orange (sliced), 1 lime (sliced), and about 1 cup of additional blackberries for the sangria before refrigerating.

SUBSTITUTIONS: Substitute extra orange or lime for the other.

Scarlett O’Hara

I made this one up and named it for one of my all-time favorite Southern Characters because it’s make up of Red wine and Peaches! My Aunt Jeanie nicknamed me Scarlett (because like Scarlett, my Aunt and I are drama queens). Note: I prefer not to add the the ginger ale until it is served to preserve the fizz.

Cheers to my Aunt Jeanie up in Heaven! She would have loved this!
