Sweet, Sweet Sangria

May 7, 2008

Monday night meant a roof-top Cinco de Mayo party at the apartment which featured Erica’s signature and delicious Strawberry-Grapefruit White Sangria. Here’s how you make it:

Ingredients:

4 bottles of Sauvignon Blanc
1 cup White Rum (although I did it with raspberry vodka once and it was delish)
2 Pink Grapefruit Juiced (about 1 cup)
1 Pink Grapefruit
1 Pint of Strawberries
1/2 cup sugar

Instructions:
– thinly slice strawberries, mix with sugar and let sit covered at least 15 minutes or refrigerate overnight (it will turn into a kinda strawberry simple syrup)
– juice two grapefruits, mix with rum and let sit covered at least 15 minutes or refrigerate overnight
– cut the other grapefruit in circles (optional)
– mix wine, strawberry and sugar mixture, and rum and grapefruit mixture together, float grapefruit circles on the top)
– enjoy

I don’t have a photo of the actual finished product, so use your imagination with the one above.
