In the Kitchen - Sangria

Light and Tangy Summer Sangria

First of all, I am not a huge fan of Sangria, it's too heavy & too sweet. But... I went to a Kentucky Derby party a couple months ago & my friend Kari made this delectable adult beverage, & I am now a fan of Sangria (this one anyways)!

It's made with gin instead of brandy & it has ginger ale in it, it makes for a light, bubbly, tart & tangy drink! (I mean light as far as red wines are concerned.)
See recipe blow.

 This recipe was adapted from:, Best Party Sangria Recipe, From Stacy Slinkard, Your Guide to Wine

(If you triple the recipe, it will fill one of your fancy party beverage dispensers.)

1 Bottle of red wine
4 Cups ginger ale
1 Cup sliced strawberries (fresh or thawed)
1 Small can of diced pineapples with juice
2 Shots of gin
1 Lemon cut into wedges
1 Orange cut into wedges
1 Lime cut into wedges
2 Tablespoons sugar
Splash of orange juice

Pour wine into pitcher or large bowl, add squeezed juice of the citrus fruits & throw in the peels (no seeds), add the pineapple, sugar, orange juice, & gin. Chill overnight. Add ginger ale & strawberries before serving. You can serve it over ice, or add a couple small bags of frozen fruit to your serving dispenser to keep it cold. I used a bag of frozen peaches & a bag of frozen strawberries.
