BBL 2013-2014 | Find an Awesome Sangria Recipe


Why did I include this on my Bucket List?

I love Sangria, so I thought it would be great if I found a recipe that I can make at home any time I want.

Was the experience what I had hoped it would be?

Better! I ended up combining two different recipes in an attempt to reduce the sugar as much as possible and include more of my favorite fruits.  I was expecting to have to make some adjustments or try a few different recipes, but I got lucky and loved the very first recipe that I tried!

The details...

If you like Sangria, give this recipe a try!

  • 1 Bottle of your favorite white wine
  • 1 Lemon cut into wedges
  • 1 Orange cut into wedges
  • 1 Lime cut into wedges
  • 1/2 cup limeade
  • 2 shots of apricot flavored brandy
  • 2/3 cups Agave nectar
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries 
  • 3/4 cup raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 cups club soda
Pour wine into a pitcher and squeeze the juice wedges from the lemon, orange and lime into the wine. Toss in the fruit wedges (leaving out seeds if possible) then add the agave nectar, limeade, and brandy. Chill overnight. Add club soda, strawberries, raspberries and ice just before serving.  Yum!
