Instant Sangria
Usually the best sangrias are the ones that are made ahead of time, allowed to "marinate" overnight, and packed with ice and more fruit before serving. However, if you want to cater to more spur of the moment sangrias, sans the preplanning efforts, then this may just be your recipe!

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 750 ml bottle of your favorite red or white wine
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 1 orange
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup sugar (sweeten to taste)
  • 2 cups Ginger Ale

Preparation:

The "instant" part of this recipe takes a little work upfront. First, you will need to peel the lemon, lime and orange and remove the seeds. Next, put the citrus fruits into a blender with the raspberries, strawberries, sugar and ginger ale. Blend all of the ingredients (except the wine) together, until it is "slushy." Now pour your sangria slush into ice cube trays and freeze. When the mixture is totally frozen pop the sangria cubes into a ziploc back and keep frozen. Now the fun part, whenever you have a hankering for an instant Sangria, just pour yourself a glass of wine and plop 3-5 of your Sangria mix ice cubes into the glass. Enjoy!

very fun Sangria idea, Member burgeltz1

This is a fun idea for fast Sangrias, though not quite the ""marinated fruit"" flavor of a traditional overnight chill, works great in a ""pinch.""
