Sake Sangria

Before making this sangria I had never drank sake. My husband and I went to Binny’s and asked their staff what was a good affordable sangria. She asked what we were using it for, and when I told her the look of horror was hilarious. Apparently using sake for sangria is sacrilegious. So be warned 😉

Half Bottle (about 1 1/2 cup) Sake
1 1/2 cup Pomegranate Wine
3 cups Plum Wine
1/2 cup Grenadine
1 cup Orange juice
1 1/3 cup Pomegranate juice (POM Wonderful)
1/2 cup Pineapple juice

Oranges
Jar of Maraschino Cherries

Let sit overnight preferably, but at least 4-5 hours before serving.

Makes about 2 1/2 gallons of sangria

Pumpkin Spice Sangria

6 cups peach mango juice (or something similar like apple passion mango)
2 bottles of Pumpkin Spice liqueur (clear orange stuff, not the thick opaque stuff)
2 cups Apple Orchard Bourbon (Evan Williams)
1 1/2 cup Cinnamon Bourbon (Evan Williams)

2 Peaches
5 Cinnamon sticks

Let sit overnight preferably, but at least 4-5 hours before serving.

Made a little over 2 gallons of sangria

*If I make it again I’ll come back and update this post
