mix it up {knock-your-socks-off sangria}

May 17, 2013

When I asked the Circus Berry readers to share what they would put in the pitcher I was giving away this week as part of the Summer Nights Porch Soiree Giveaway, I got lots of calls for Sangria.

I was inspired by the suggestion, so I made some last night for my husband and myself.  And I will confess…we drank the whole pitcher.  Whoops.

Now, this is what I call Knock-Your-Socks-Off Sangria.

In a pitcher, mix:

1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 peach, cubed
1/2 pear, cubed
1 bottle of dry white wine
1/3 cup peach brandy
1/4 cup triple sec
1/2 cup orange juice
3/4 cup pineapple juice

Here is the fun part that will knock off your socks:
After you dole out the sangria, top each glass with a splash of ginger beer. It gives it a little zing and is super good.

Or you can go the road of my dear friend Leanne and top off your sangria with little bit of light beer. We used Modelo and it was also good. Just watch out…it’ll sneak up on you the next day…
