So turn off the news and let’s make a happy and zesty sangria recipe!
WHAT YOU’LL NEED FOR THIS EASY SANGRIA RECIPE:
You will need limes
Apples, I used green apples, but you could be super fancy and use my other favorite, honey crisp apples.
A good quality Vodka like Belvedere or Grey Goose
A good quality white wine, I recommend a good quality Pinot Grigio to keep up with the fruity vibes.
Mango lemonade or fresh squeezed orange juice. I find that any fresh squeezed citrus or mango juice works wonderfully for Sangria recipes.
Garnish items: Rosemary sprigs, cinnamon sticks, and Star Anise
USE UP THOSE PEARS AND APPLES SITTING AROUND ON YOUR KITCHEN COUNTER
It is pear and apple season and pears taste great in any cocktail recipe so I wanted a drink that used both of these fruits. There’s a twist too. To make this Sangria really fruity and to bring out the other fruit flavors, I also used Santa Cruz Mango Lemonade in my Sangria recipe. It makes the Sangria pop and works really well when combined with white wine.
Fresh, seasonal fruit in a Sangria recipe is a must! I sliced up fresh green apples, fresh pears, limes, oranges, and pomegranate. Fresh pomegranate in a Sangria recipe is so good and makes the Sangria look so vibrant and delicious. For my drink garnish, I used cinnamon sticks, star anise, orange slices, and some fresh rosemary sprigs.
