Strawberry Mint Sangria

3 Jun

It’s a lazy Sunday, the perfect time for some delicious sangria. I prefer white sangria over the traditional red, but I am willing to drink both.

The fresh mint that I used came straight from my garden. It was so aromatic. It’s really what makes this sangria.

Strawberry Mint Sangria

makes approximately 4 Liters

Ingredients:

  • 1.5 Liter White Wine (I choose a Pinot Grigio)
  • 1 Liter Italian Soda or Sparkling Mineral Water
  • 8 ounces pineapple juice
  • 4 ounces orange juice
  • 8 ounces orange liquor ( I choose Paula’s Texas Orange)
  • 1 pint strawberries, sliced
  • 2 cup fresh mint
  • 2 oranges, sliced thick

Directions:

  1. Combine all liquid ingredients, stir to combine.
  2. Add strawberries and mint. Let Sangria chill in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving.
  3. Place orange slices on a cookie sheet, and place in freezer.
  4. Pour Sangria into serving pitcher.
  5. When ready to serve glasses place a frozen orange slice and ice cubes in glass then pour Sangria to fill.
