Happy Monday my home bartenders!! I can’t wait for tonight’s episode of the Bachelor, Bekah M. is quickly becoming my favorite, who are y’all liking? Let me know in the comments! I could talk about the Bachelor all day (lol). For my watch party tonight I decided to make Sangria. It’s finally warming up in Houston so it seemed fitting. I made mine with Diet Sprite so it does make the recipe a little skinnier. In the photos, you will see a double batch. The recipe below is a single batch.
Bottle of sweet red (I used Barefoot)
1/4 cup of Triple Sec (or Grand Marnier)
1 cup of orange juice
Handful of strawberries & cherries
2 tablespoons sugar
1 can Diet Sprite
To Garnish: sugar and a large strawberry
Pour the bottle of sweet red into a pitcher, crush the fruit and toss it in. Add the triple sec, organge juice, and sugar into the pitcher and mix. Let it sit up for at least a few hours. Lastly, pour the Diet Sprite in before serving.
I know I always say my recipes are easy but man this one was a breeze! Hope you enjoyed it and please let me know if y’all want to see more skinny(ier) cocktails.
Til next time, drink up!
