Daily Necessities of Life – and Coffee Helps Too

Sangria and More – When Wine Just Isn’t Quite Enough!

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 page 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. Cheers!

Please note that the wines that I recommend for each recipe are not always available. This is why I try to recommend more than one for each. If you have questions, please contact me via the form at the end!

200906-r-campari-cocktailNo Fuss Breakfast Sangria – Hit the Road Mimosa!

  1. 3 3/4 cups sweet late-harvest white wine, such as Riesling or another nice white
  2. 2 1/4 cups fresh orange juice
  3. 1 cup Campari
  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!

 

Sangria with Schnapps! Try with Bright Eyed Bird or another crisp white.
1031312 1/2 cup peach schnapps
1/2 cup cognac
1/4 cup white sugar
4 oranges, sliced into rounds
2 mangos, peeled and sliced
4 (750 milliliter) bottles dry white wine, chilled
1 liter ginger ale, chilled

Directions
In a pitcher, combine peach schnapps, cognac, sugar, sliced oranges and sliced mangos. Chill for at least an hour.
Pour fruit mixture into a large punch bowl. Stir in white wine and ginger ale.

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.

    Oops. I think I left my comment as a message! Here it is: I love the second sangria recipe! I usually put the blackberries into the simple syrup recipe, too. I usually use brandy, but a flavored vodka sounds even better!
