I've been on a bit of a lemongrass kick lately, and thought hmmm.... what about a sangria with lemongrass in it? ⺾🍋🍷 I found a delicious recipe for one, and you're going to want to stash this recipe away for the summer because it is fruity and delicious!


Tropical Sangria

Total: 4 hr 45 min | Active: 10 min | Yield: 4 to 6 servings


INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, coarsely chopped
  • 1 bottle sauvignon blanc, chilled
  • 1 cup passion fruit nectar
  • 1 cup light rum
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 orange, thinly sliced
  • Ice
  • Fresh mint sprigs

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Combine the sugar, 1/2 cup water and lemongrass in a medium saucepan over high heat. Cook until the sugar is dissolved. Remove and let steep for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day. Strain and chill.
  2. Combine the wine, passion fruit nectar, rum, 1/4 cup of the lemongrass simple syrup, and the lemons and oranges in a pitcher. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. The longer it sits the better the flavor. Serve over ice. Garnish with mint sprigs. Cheers!
