This recipe can change each time it is made, depending on what wine is on hand and what fruit is available. In this the strawberries were perfect after about an hour, the raspberries started to disintegrate and the blueberries didn’t absorb much alcohol… but everything did stay very tasty. You can also substitute almost any liquor for the vodka – rum, tequila, triple sec, brandy, gin…
This recipe can also be made with red wine; but that is better in the winter… it’s a bit heavier and better for cool weather indulgences.
Serves: 4 or 2 depending on how much you want to drink!
Put ice cubes in bottom of pitcher, toss in fruit on top of ice along with lemon juice.
Add wine, champagne and vodka. Stir.
Retire to someplace comfortable with two glasses and a good friend. Drink the sangria and don’t forget to indulge in the quite inebriated fruit…especially as the evening progresses.
