Super Bowl Sangrias

A good twitter friend asked me if I had any sangria recipes that would be great for the super bowl. Of course I do!! This got me to thinking that others may be interested in the recipes so I’m sharing a couple of them here. Enjoy!

Sangria

  • bottles fruit-forward red wine (such as Pinot Noir or Beaujolais)
  • 1  liter Cherry Coke
  • 1  cup  pomegranate juice
  • 3/4  cup  brandy
  • 1/4  cup  Triple Sec
  • pears, cored and thinly sliced
  • oranges, thinly sliced
  1. In a large bowl, combine the wine, black cherry soda, pomegranate juice, brandy, Triple Sec, pears, and oranges. Serve over ice.

This one is a little bit different since it uses beer but, with beer being such a popular drink for football in general, I figure putting it in a sangria-style punch just makes sense!

Beer-gria

  • 1 (750-milliliter) bottle Lindemans Framboise
  • 2 (11.2-ounce) bottles cold Hoegaarden white ale
  • 6 ounces Lillet Blanc, chilled
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 medium orange, thinly sliced
INSTRUCTIONS
Combine all of the measured ingredients in a large pitcher and stir until evenly mixed. Serve over ice.
