When a stay-at-home-mom has wine and fresh fruit in the house, what’s she going to do? Make sangria of course! And this isn’t any sangria, this sangria is for one person. Yep! For me and me only. What’s great about this recipe is you can make it your own with the type of fruit and wine you like. I used chardonnay because that’s what I had but a red wine would work, too! So come on! Have a cocktail with me…
What you will need:
Wine glass (or mason jar if you have one)
6 oz. wine, white or red
2 oz. Brandy
Fresh fruit, I used strawberries, blueberries and lemon
Lemon-lime pop (I used Sprite and yes, I say pop. True Chicagoan here!)
I made this early in the day and then stuck it in the fridge until I was ready to drink it. But, if you drink it right away, it’s just as good! The fruit just won’t have time to soak up all that booze 😉 So, you can make this a few hours before drinking or right when you want one.
In your glass, pour the wine. Add the Brandy. Cut up the fruit you are using and add that. Stick in the fridge and add the pop just before drinking OR if drinking now, add it! As much or as little as you want. I think I added about 1/4 cup. Garnish with fruit if desired. Cheers!
Yes, I had fun taking pictures of this beauty.
