So some of us were talking Friday at work…..about Sangria…..so, I had a few ripe mangoes and tried out this recipe with a few alterations……SOOOOOO good that I’ve made another pitcher tonight.
Light and refreshing!
Mango Raspberry Sangria
1 mango sliced
2 cups raspberries (fresh or frozen)
1 lime sliced
1 bottle of cheap wine :) (I’ve made it with red wine and catawba wine…..the red wine was the best…..I used a Missouri wine that was on sale for $5.96/bottle)
1 can club soda
3 oz brandy
I start out by adding wine and brandy to a pitcher…..
Next add lime….
Doesn’t it look pretty?
Oh yeah, don’t forget the club soda for a little fizz!
Now, this is the HARD part…..cover it up (so you don’t lose the fizz) and refrigerate it for 8 hours or overnight…….yeah right….I think last night I made it for 2-3 hours before we broke into it…..but just imagine how much BETTER it could have been if it could have soaked and marinated longer:)
I serve mine in big plastic tumblers with ice….it’s been in the 90’s and it’s so good sipping it and sitting outside on a sultry night…
