It’s spring, and flowers are blooming, trees are budding, and, as days become longer, they also become warmer.
Here’s a light red sangria that is great for this time of year; serve it at brunch, perhaps on Easter Sunday or Mother’s Day, or out on the porch with light appetizers, such as our Raisin Toast with Honey Cream Cheese + Everything Bagel Spice [LINK]
1 pint strawberries, trimmed and sliced
1 pint blueberries
3 peaches, stones removed and rough chopped
1 bottle Grenache/Garacha, such as a 2016 Gerberas Garacha; tasting notes HERE [LINK]
13/4cup fruit-based liqueur, such as Nektar liqueur [LINK]
Club soda, chilled
In a large pitcher, add strawberries, blueberries and peaches. Add wine and liqueur and stir; refrigerate several hours. Before serving fill pitcher with club soda. Garnish each glass with fresh mint.
