Since Spring has finally hit, I’m going to put out a quick ebook of recipes for wine cocktails. You’ll learn why you should never soak citrus fruit in your Sangria pitcher. the difference between a Mimosa and a Bucks Fizz, and how to make a Kir Royale. Stay tuned!
It will soon be Sangria season. My recipe can be mostly prepared several days in advance.
- 2 bottles hearty Spanish red (Grenache or Grenache blend)
- 2 pears, cored and cut into 1/2″ cubes
- 1 cup fresh or frozen berry mix
- 48 oz bottle of fruity lemonade/limeade (I like Trader Joe’s Pomegranate Limeade)
- 1 L sparkling water
Combine all ingredients except the sparkling water in a large container, and keep covered in the refrigerator for at least 24 hours (you can keep this up to 5 days long). Just before serving, add the sparkling water.
