Strawberry Mango Sangria
It took me years to learn how to temper the perfect Sangria! Ever since then I have experimented non-stop with different fruit combinations. I developed this Strawberry Mango Sangria recipe based upon what fruit was in season. The majority of all of my recipes I come up with are inspired by what is seasonal.
With all that is going on with the Corona virus we all may need a few extra adult beverages while schooling our children at home, so let me tell you this Strawberry Mango Sangria is the drink for you! I am totally joking because I have never been happier having my Little Ones at home 24 hours a day. Yes, I am one of those odd Mommas who is NOT going stir crazy having the kids under foot at all times.Jump to Recipe
First you want to add strawberries, oranges, mangos, and sugar to a large pitcher. Now mash the fruit and sugar with the wooden spoon or muddler until the fruit releases some of the juice and most of the sugar has dissolved.
Next stir in the Vodka, Orange Liqueur, and Merlot into your pitcher. Then refrigerate for a very minimum of 8 hours! I recommend you refrigerate for a minimum of 24 hours for the best tasting Strawberry Mango Sangria that is perfectly balanced.
Finally before serving add 3-4 frozen grapes (use ice if you don’t have grapes) to each serving glass. Now pour Sangria over the frozen grapes or ice in each glass.
Strawberry Mango Sangria
- Large Pitcher
- Wooden Spoon or Muddler
- 1/2 – 1 lb Strawberries organic, cut into halves
- 2 Oranges organic, sliced or cut into 1/8ths
- 2 Mangos preferably organic, diced into medium chunks
- 1/4 cup Sugar superfine
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups Vodka plain
- 1/4 cup Orange Liqueur
- 750 ml Red Wine (MERLOT ALWAYS!!!)
- Add strawberries, oranges, mangos, and sugar to a large pitcher. Now mash the fruit and sugar with the wooden spoon or muddler until the fruit releases some of the juice and most of the sugar has dissolved.
- Stir in Vodka, Orange Liqueur, and Merlot. Refrigerate for a very minimum of 8 hours!
- Before serving add 3-4 frozen grapes (use ice if you don’t have grapes) to each serving glass. Finally, pour Sangria over the ice in each glass.
- Do NOT add ice directly to your Sangria pitcher. It will water it down and mess up your Sangria. When you are ready to serve add 3-4 frozen grapes directly to each serving glass.
- You can get away with letting your Sangria sit and chill for 8 hours but it will not taste as good as a Sangria that has been chilling for 24 hours! I find that it tastes best after letting it chill for 48 hours!!!
