So earlier this week I did a post about my favorite sandwich ever and our picnic at the beach, and I got several people asking for my sangria recipe. Well, I don’t want to disappoint! However, I want to preface this by saying it is a fake sangria recipe that I made up while I was at the grocery store, so you might want to file this more under the category of ‘yummy fruity drinks with lots of alcohol’. It was tasty though and we had enough for a couple nights. It was husband approved too, so I guess I can count it as a win!
- 750 ml white wine (I always buy super cheap white wine when I’m mixing it with juice)
- 3/4 cup vodka
- 2 cups juice of your choice. I used apricot/mango and apple (shout out to Santa Cruz!)
- 1/2 lb strawberries (sliced)
- 1/2 lb orange slices
- 1 lime (sliced)
Mix all ingredients together and chill in refrigerator for at least 2 hours, but it’s even better if you wait overnight because the flavors blend together.
Accept what life offers you and try to drink from every cup. All wines should be tasted; some should only be sipped, but with others, drink the whole bottle.”
