World’s Best Sangria

August 21, 2011 at 10:50 am | Posted in Uncategorized | 1 Comment

Matt has been slowly but surely converting me to a win0 wine appreciator, and we have visited many of northern Virginia’s local wineries during my “conversion” process.  Last summer, at the Winery at La Grange, at the end of their tasting flight, they offered me a taste of their sangria – and it was love!  This is assuredly one of the best sangria recipes out there – it is so delicious.

Here are the ingredients for my slightly modified version:

  • 1 bottle LaGrange meritage (I substitute merlot)
  • 1 cup Simply Orange Mango juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup
  • 3 T. lemon juice
  • ginger ale
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lime
  • 1 lemon

Mix the wine, juices, and syrup in a pitcher, and then fill with ice (or save the ice for the glasses if you don’t want it to get watered down).  Top with ginger ale and fruit slices!

Delicious!  Doesn’t that look refreshing?
