Wine is perfectly fine but every once in awhile I like to kick it up a notch and make sangria. I came up with this one this past weekend. It was warm enough (Sunday) to sit outside and enjoy a glass, especially since you’re looking around at all the upcoming yard work that will need to be done soon. It’s nice to savor the time (with wine in hand) until we do that, which will probably be next weekend! (Oh and by Monday morning it was 30 degrees!)
Enjoy a glass of sangria whether sippin’ and chillaxin’ or doing yard work, then you really deserve one or three 🙂
1 bottle Raspberry wine, chilled (I used Ruinite)
2 c. cranberry juice, chilled
1 c. Razzamattazz liquor
2 c. white grape juice, chilled
1/4 – 1/2 c. lime juice (I used 1/2 cup, otherwise it’s too sweet for me)
7-up, sprite or club soda, chilled (I used sprite)
1 orange, 1 lime and one granny smith apple
short kebab skewers
(This was only available in fifths…guess I’ll have to make more sangria :))
Mix wine, razzamattazz schnapps, cranberry juice, white grape juice and lime juice in a pitcher. Stir well.
Cut your orange into slices and quarter them. Cut the apple into bite-size chunks. Slice the limes and halve the slices.
Thread onto the kebab skewer: orange, apple, maraschino cherry and lime slice. Repeat.
Pour a glass of sangria about 1/2 – 3/4 full. Top with 1/4 c. – 1/2 c. of 7-up, sprite or club soda. Add fruit kebab and enjoy! 🙂
