Summer Sangria Two Ways
Today we are sharing two fruit-infused sangria cocktails (easily made into a mocktail for anyone not drinking by skipping the wine) from expert mixologist Kim Haasarud of Liquid Architecture and author of the 101 Cocktail book series, including 101 Sangrias and Pitcher Drinks.
Mom to Maddy, 10 and Holden, 12, she says the key to a good sangria is fresh (good looking, not bruised) fruit, a little sugar (and that can include whatever you have – honey, sweet one, simple syrup and even Stevia) and a decent wine.
Bottomless Honey Orange Sangria
This is a fun and easy way to Sip Sangrias, inspired by a friend of mine who had a tangerine tree in his backyard. Just keeping adding more orange ice, prosecco and honey water, as needed.
Tangerine or Orange ice Cubes *
1 oz orange blossom honey water **
Top with Prosecco
* Tangerine / Orange Ice Cubes
In an ice cube tray, fill with fresh OJ or tangerine juice and let freeze overnight.
** Orange Blossom honey water
2 parts honey
1 part HOT water
Dissolve. Keep refrigerated.
Fill a tall glass (or wine glass with orange / tangerine ice cubes.). Add 1 oz honey water. Top with Prosecco and stir well. As you drink it and the ice cubes start to dissolve, it’s a lovely orange flavor that seeps into the drink. It continues to change over time. Just keep adding more ice, more Prosecco and more honey water, as needed.
Tutti Fruiti Sangria
A fun and fruit-forward Sangria made with strawberries, rose, lemonade, pineapple and lime sorbet.
