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

Watermelon Sangria

Sangria always tastes better when you let it sit so the fruit has time to infuse the liquer/juice with their flavor, however, since we’re juicing the watermelon and adding it in this is more of an “instant” sangria. Give it a couple of hours before serving.

4 bottles Sauvignon Blance
1 bottle Watermelon Moscato (Afternoon Delight)
4 tablespoons Simple Syrup
1/2 cup Peach Schnapps
1/4 cup Peach Brandy
1/4 cup Peach Margarita mix

1 mini watermelon, sliced and remove the seeds
2 necturines
1 lime
strawberries

Juice remaining watermelon and add to sangria

Makes a little over 2 gallons of sangria

 

Chocolate Cherry Sangria

I always thought a Chocolate wine would be heaven, then a friend told me about Cocobon. Mmmmm. This is the perfect book club or romantic night sangria.

2 1/2 cups UV Chocolate Cake Vodka (or to taste… I may have added more, I kinda lost count, lol)
4 cups Black Cherry juice
1/4 cup plus 1 shot of Chambord

Black cherries (slice in half and pit)

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