Summertime – A time for peonies, warm weather, open-toed shoes, and sangria! We love us a good summer cocktail and wanted to share an easy and delicious recipe for you to enjoy!
First up, the ingredients. You’ll need a bottle of red wine, orange liqueur, orange juice, brandy, pineapple chunks with juice, sugar, ginger ale, oranges, lemons, and limes.
Start off with a half cup of sugar and pour into a pitcher or beverage dispenser.
Add a bottle of red wine to the sugar and stir until it is dissolved.
Add half a cup of orange liqueur. Stir.
Add 1/4 cup of brandy.
And one cup of orange juice.
Add a can of diced pineapple with juice and stir.
Chop up some fruit and add to the sangria. Make sure to chill for an hour or two to let the flavors set. Note: the longer you let set, the longer the flavors have a chance to meld.
Stir in one bottle of ginger ale, serve over ice and ENJOY! (strategically placed peonies optional)
