Red & White Wine Sangria
I came up with this sangria recipe because I was using the empty wine bottles to make drinking glasses (tutorial video coming soon) and I didn’t want to waste all that wine down the drain. I’ve made sangria a few different times using all sort of recipes I found online. It’s typically made using either a red wine adding berries and brandy or a white wine adding apples, peaches, oranges and a clear liquor.
For this specific recipe, I took a risk and mixed red and white wines. Afraid of how it would taste, I added various fruits that I had in my kitchen which I knew went well with the different wines. The Moscato and Riesling are both sweet white wines while Cabernet Sauvignon is a dry, dark fruit flavored red wine. Lastly, adding the Sprite to the mix gave it that refreshing fizz.
I was happy to come up with this delicious sangria that I can serve during any season by chilling it in the refrigerator or by warming it up in the microwave for a minute or so. If you are looking to make a sweet and easy sangria for the first time whether it’s for brunch or dinner I definitely suggest trying this recipe. Once you get the hang of it, be creative and try adding your own flare. Let me know how your sangria turns out!
