Vegan Sangria Recipe

This weekend I had a lovely time making my own Sangria. I must say this will be a staple in my fridge and I enjoyed the ‘testing’ aspect of this thrown together recipe.

Wine is a very personal thing, I find everyone has their own favourites and I am not incredibly knowledgeable in this area, so I invite you to pick your own vegan wine as a base. Most people pick red wine, but white is just as good and possibly sweeter (depending on the choice).

The crazy part about all wine not being vegan has to do with the filtering process. Click here to read an older post I wrote about why all wine isn’t vegan.

Ingredients:

1/2 bottle of wine
1/4 cup of Grand Marnier
2.5 tbsp of ‘tea’ from dried hibiscus
2.5 tbsp simple sugar mixture
2 tbsp lime juice
1 cup of Perrier (any flavour)
1 cup of ice cubes
1/4 cup diced pineapple
1/4 cup diced apple
1/4 cup diced strawberries
1/4 cup diced orange
1/4 cup diced mango
Juice of 1/2 an orange

Juice the orange and lime and pour into your pitcher/container, then add the other liquid, ice cubes and fruit. The simple sugar mixture is exactly that, it is equal parts sugar and water boiled in a pan over high heat. Stir the mixture till it bubbles and then remove from the heat till it cools and add to the Sangria. The strawberries and orange are most likely to sink to the bottom of your pitcher, so might want to use a long spoon to reach if you want them in each cup. I would recommend chilling this drink over night for best results, but if you’re in a hurry, this will do as well. I do suggest chilling the red wine, yes, I know it’s against the grain, but in this instance the drink is best served cold.

Enjoy!

  1. This would taste good right about now!

  2. Oh goodness, I shall make that for Fourth of July! Perhaps add some blueberries to make it bluer!
