Whenever I entertain, I serve sangria. I’m known for my recipe and I never seem to make enough of it! Here is my best sangria recipe ever!
To kick off summer, we always have a huge BBQ in our backyard, and without fail, I make sangria. Our guests look forward to it, so much so, that I’m getting texts and phone calls days in advance to reserve a glass for them. I run out within minutes of the party starting.
If you google sangria recipes, you’ll find hundreds. Between red wine sangria and white wine sangria, the internet is loaded with recipes. Believe me, I’ve looked. And though I’ve tried a few and have enjoyed each one, none compare to my own sangria recipe.
Most recipes have the addition of rum. Some with tequila. I’ve even tasted a couple with vodka and bourbon included. Though I finished my glass with each tasting, I have come up with the liquor trifecta of the best ever sangria recipe.
Here’s My Secret
Sangria is wine based with the addition of a liquor or two, and various fresh fruits. Not matter how you slice it, all recipes are delish, but I would like to take the liberty to say that my recipe is epic!
I don’t turn to rum, nor tequila. And, though I love me some bourbon, it’s really better suited for another cocktail. Today, it’s all about the sangria and the best recipe ever with the most delicious ingredients added!!
My secret is cherry brandy
I start with a notable Pinot Noir that isn’t grossly expensive, and then I add three different liquors: triple sec, French brandy, and then, yes, cherry brandy. I follow all those up with a generous splash of simple syrup and orange juice.
When I was researching sangria recipes to see if mine could be a top Google contender, no recipe included cherry brandy. This recipe will push me to the top.
So, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, I have some amazing recipes to share. All will blend perfectly with Sangria!
Feeling like a margarita, but tired of the same old, same old? Then, by all means, turn your attention to this margarita recipe!!
