Time for a Drink: Strawberry Mint Sangria!

Ready for a simple, delicious drink? I know I am! Love the idea of pairing super fresh ingredients in this classic drink, to add some spring vibe to it!

Ingredients {For 1 serving}
*5 grams mint leaves, plus extra for garnish
*1/4 cup + 2tbsp of Sangria {combination of 1 bottle of white wine, 1/4  cup brandy and 1 cup orange juice}
*1/4 cup strawberry puree
*Fresh strawberries to garnish, optional
*Ice cubes

Place all the ingredients in shaker, mix, and serve in a glass. Garnish with mint leaves and fresh strawberries... and voila, you have a fabulous classic drink with a twist! Cheers!

as fate would have it, I currently have 3 tubs of fresh strawberries, a bunch of mint and a bottle of white wine in my fridge. I'm not saying I'll be drinking these tonight, but I AM saying it seems like a strong possibility. Happy birthday to me!

Please let me know what you meant by this. Thanks,

Sorry for that Esther, yes is 1/4 cup of brandy!! That is how I like it but if you like it stronger you can add a little bit more!
I guess I was so savoring this drink in my mind that I forgot to put the # of cups! Thank you for letting me know!! Enjoy!!!

Mary, since I don't believe in coincidence but causality... I guess it was really meant to happen!!! Happy happy birthday to you!!!

Hi Angie, thanks for stopping by!!

My brother-in-law loves sangria and this one sounds so refreshing! I might have to make it for the 4th of July with everyone together!
