FROZEN BLOOD ORANGE SANGRIA


Ingredients:
  • 2 bottles dry white wine
  • 2/3 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/3 cup club soda
  • 1/2 cup Cointreau or brandy
  • 1 green apple, 1/2 chopped, 1/2 sliced
  • 1-1/4 cups strawberries
  • 4 blood oranges, juiced
  • 2 blood oranges, peels removed and sliced
  • 2-3 cups ice

Directions: 
  1. Juice 4 of the 6 blood oranges (with your hands). Place the juice in a large pitcher. Add the sliced blood orange pieces into the same pitcher, saving one or two for garnish.
  2. Mix the white wine, club soda, Cointreau, cranberry juice, 1/2 cup chopped apple, strawberries and blood orange juice and pieces together.
  3. In batches, blend the juice mixture with the ice until frozen. Serve immediately with apple slices and blood orange slices.

I love the look of these in a mason jar, don't you? Cheers!
