Tutti Fruity Sangria

In June, I was inspired by A Common Connoisseur’s “Boozy Grapefruit Sangria.” I followed the recipe fairly closely (didn’t have berries, added some other fruits) and it was delicious!

Now that I have some red wine I don’t particularly like, I decided to try my own take on sangria, and here we are!

Ingredients
  • 1 bottle of red wine (I used Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 1 cup vodka
  • 1 can frozen limeade, thawed
  • 1 can of Ginger Ale
  • 2 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 6 oz frozen dark sweet cherries (approximately)
  • 6 oz frozen mix of strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries (approximately)
  • ½ red grapefruit
  • 1 mango, chunked
  • 1 apple, chunked
  • 1 pear, chunked
  • 1 tangerine, chunked
  • 1 peach, chunked
  • 1 lemon, sliced (remove seeds)
  • 1 apricot, chunked

Steps
  1. Mix sugar, grapefruit, and limeade in the pitcher.
  2. Add all other ingredients (including Ginger Ale).
  3. Chill overnight (or as long as you can wait!)
We're going to call this an artistic display of the sangria, not a whoops-the-lid-is-loose accident. There are no accidents in art 😂 #nailedit #sangriasplatter

And then…
  • After I ran out, I just added part of a bottle of Riesling to the fruit. It was really good!
  • After I ran out of that, I added about 2 cups of vodka and a carafe of pineapple-orange juice to the pitcher full of fruit. Delicious!
  • Then, after all of that, I put the sangria/vodka/juice infused fruit into baggies and put them in the freezer. I plan to either use them as ice cubes in wine or make some kind of spiked smoothie.
