Boozy Homemade Sangria

IMG_8860In the words of Toni Braxton “how many ways I love you, let me count the ways”. Only I would being singing this to a glass of Sangria lol. For some reason for years I had this preconceived notion that Sangria was a safe drink until I made my own for the first time about a year ago. I found there isn’t any wrong way to make it. Wine, fruit, sugar a little extra booze you can’t go wrong, I now find it to be one of the sexiest drinks out there. So here’s my take on white Sangria.

  • 1 bottle of your favorite white wine (I normally use Riesling)
  • 1 liter of lemon lime club soda (you can also just add ginger ale but I like being able to control my sugar)
  • 3-4 oranges
  • pomegranate seeds
  • peach chunks
  • 1 lemon
  • 4 limes
  • 1 oz of triple sec
  • 1 oz of rum
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar

Cut up and squeeze oranges, limes and lemons and add to pitcher. Then add in peach chunks and pomegranate seeds. Add wine, sugar, triple sec and rum. Refrigerate Sangria for a couple of hours or for best results overnight. Then add club soda you may also feel the need to add more sugar at this time. Drink and chew often!
