Next Magazine - Baby's Sangria

My fella makes a mean Sangria, whether it’s red or white. While I love them all (my fella and either of the Sangrias), I really like to slake my thirst with his White Sangria, perfect to fill up a large container and plunge into an ice-filled carry-all cooler, before off to the Park or the Piers! Shopping, or the movies!

Baby’s Sangria

Serves 6-8, for a time

½ bottle Champagne or white wine
1 cup brandy
½ cup Grand Marnier or Cointreau
1 cup tequila (Jose Cuervo Gold is good, but you needn’t be proud)
Any variety of light colored juices, such as white cranberry or the mixed fruit juices (or both) in an equal amount to the Champagne or white wine
1 bag frozen fruit, such as peaches or mixed berries

Combine the first five ingredients together and shake well. Pour in a smart, summery glass loaded with ice and add some of the frozen fruit, which will also help to keep the drink cold.

Feel free to play fast and loose with the ingredients according to taste, but most importantly, enjoy whatever variation of this Sangria you make with every sip of summer. Cheers darling!
