Fruity Sangria

Fruity Sangria in a glass

We’ve had a bottle of California Champagne in our wine refrigerator for probably a year and a half. Champagne isn’t something we drink very often at all, so we’ve been waiting to find a use for it. We’ve also had a bottle of a sweet rosé wine. Again, we don’t tend to drink sweet wine, so we’ve been looking for a use for it as well.

When it’s a hot, summer day, it’s nice to have a light and refreshing beverage. It’s been raining most of the day here, and it’s still pretty muggy out. Since we’ve had all of the rain, we’ve stayed at home all day. Seems like a good day to have a little adult beverage!

I remembered a sangria that Jon and I had in Illinois at a small winery. It was sweet, fruity, and just a little bubbly…the perfect use for that sweet wine and champagne!

Ingredients:
1 750ml bottle of sweet muscadine rosé wine
2 and ½ cups of California Champagne
¼ cup peach schnapps
½ orange, cut into thin slices
½ granny smith apple, cut into thin slices (core and seeds removed)
½ cup fresh blueberries
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup warm to hot water

 

Directions:
Make a simple syrup by dissolving the sugar in the warm to hot water. Set aside.
