Recipe For Sparkling White Wine Sangria With Bird Bath
There’s nothing like a big punchbowl full of sparkling sangria to give a holiday shine to a party!
We’ve posted before about adding various pepper jellies to your punch bowl to “spice up” the punch. Today, however, we are passing along a tip we received from a friend. Using our crazy good Peach Mango Habanero Bird Bath.
What is Sangria?
Sangria is an alcoholic drink made with either white or red wine. It is flavored with fruit juices and other alcohol, along with real fruit added to it for a sweeter flavor.
It originated in Spain. And is typically served chilled.
For a punch adding ice cubes to the bowl or pitcher will chill it enough for serving. This is the method we use for our recipe.
What fruits go in Sangria?
This question actually has two answers. Are you looking for fruit for red Sangria or fruit for white Sangria?
Red sangria is made with, you guessed it, red wine.
A white Sangria is made with white wine.
We like to add fruits that blend with the wine, just enough to enhance the flavors already in the wine. So for red Sangria, we add things like blackberries, raspberries, cherries, oranges, pomegranate, limes, strawberries, and grapes.
When it comes to the white Sangria we prefer apples, peaches, oranges, mango, white grapes, strawberries, and kiwis.
There is no rule on what fruit to use, however, we do suggest staying away from bananas and lemons. You can use them if you want, they just don’t seem to work well for our tastes.
TPJ White Wine Sangria Recipe – with Peach Mango Habanero Bird Bath
We have an easy sangria recipe. There is no fancy way of doing things for this recipe…just the good ol’ Texas way. Simple.
Put one bottle in the punch bowl of your favorite pinot grigio. Add a 1/2 cup of peach schnapps and a full bottle of prosecco or sparkling cider.
Then, pour in 5 ounces of Texas Pepper Jelly Peach Mango Habanero Bird Bath into the wine mixture and whisk together. Don’t include the floating fruit in this process. Add some cranberry juice (we like Ocean Spray) and some ice cubes.
Slice up several different kinds of citrus fruits, apples, grapes, and peaches. Drop them into the punch bowl and stand back.
Be sure you’ve got enough cups. Everybody in the house will want a second helping.
NOTE: Keep out of reach of children under the age of 21 unless you use non-alcoholic beverages!
If you are wanting a sweet sangria with no heat, use our Peach Mango Sweet Bird Bath or any of our sweet Rib Candy flavors. They all work well. We suggest you change the fruit in your punch to match the TPJ product you choose to stir in.
