I opened up a bottle of red wine this week that ended up being a little too dry for my taste. So what do you do with an almost-full bottle of wine that you don't like? Make sangria of course! I kind of just threw this one together with items I had in the kitchen already. If you like your sangria sweet without that strong alcoholy taste then this is the one for you!
-First gather and cut the fruit you would like to use.
I had about half a flat of strawberries and eight or so small peaches that I cut up. I also added a half of lemon for a bit of zest. Place in pitcher.
-Then add in 1 cup of Sugar (You can alter this to 1/2-3/4 cup, depending on your taste and how sweet you want your sangria).
-1 cup of a citrus fruit Juice. (I used pineapple but you can use orange juice instead.)
-2 shots of Triple Sec (2 counts of 4).
- And then one bottle of Red Wine.
- Refrigerate and let contents sit for at least 2 hours but overnight is best.
When you're ready to serve you can either;
A.) Fill up your individual glass with crushed ice, add sangria mix, and top with a lemon lime soda. This way you can save and refrigerate your sangria for another day or some.
Or B.) Add your desired amount of lemon lime soda (or ginger ale) to your pitcher and serve over ice.
