The idea of sangria just speaks to me. You take one of my all-time favorite beverages, wine, add fruit, more flavor, and sip away. I’m also into the fact that you really can’t make GOOD sangria for just one person. Why? Because good sangria needs to sit a while before drinking to maximize flavor…and you can’t just not use the whole bottle of wine when preparing it!
Sangria is a party in a pitcher and we’re spicing up the mix with white wine, apples, and sparkling ginger beer. I love a good, strong red sangria filled with robust red wine and a healthy glug of brandy. But as we ease into fall, I thought it would be nice to make something lighter and more effervescent.
When making a batch, we let the wine marry with the apples, fresh ginger, some vodka and a bit of triple sec. BUT, the real magic happens when we top the wine mixture with bubbly ginger beer. For the sparkle, I used Powell & Mahoney’s Ginger Beer, which I love because of the natural ingredients, including real ginger and orange peel. Their craft cocktail mixers are always JUST the thing when I’m entertaining.
