While we are savoring the last moments of summer. I wanted to share with you a delicious sangria recipe I found on...yes, Pinterest! This recipe is different in that it uses champagne (or Prosecco) and not a red wine. I find red wine sangrias to be less flavorful. One with champers though... oh hell yes!
First, add 2 jiggers of orange liqueur or Grand Marnier to a cup of sugar to a glass jar. Also, have a chilled bottle (or 2) of champagne ready to go.
Then, cut up fruit and add it to the mixture and stir thoroughly. You can even mash the fruit a little so the juice will macerate.
Place the concoction in the refrigerator for no less than 45 minutes. When your guests arrive, open up a bottle of champagne and pour! Depending on how many people I have, I'll add another botttle. With 1 bottle of champagne added, it serves 4 wine glasses.
I found the original recipe here. Thank you Serena for a yummy sangria recipe!
Have a fabulous weekend!
