I had a Cinco de Mayo party with a few of my pseudo-alcoholic friends and figured “what the fuck, why not? This is a good group on which to try something new and unheard of.” So, here it is, the concoction I lovingly named Drunko de Wino Sangria. Enjoy!
- 3 kiwi fruits
Sliced and marinated in enough Melon Schnapps to cover, for 12 hours
- 1 Anjou pear and 1 Bosc pear
Sliced and marinated in enough Vanilla Vodka to cover for, 12 hours
- 1 mango
Cubed and marinated in enough Vanilla Vodka to cover, for 12 hours
(Do you see where this is going?)
- 1 cup of sugar
Cover with just enough water to dissolve into syrup (this part will require a little patience to fully dissolve)
- 3 bottles of Chilean Chardonnay, chilled
- 1 liter of club soda or sprite.
Put the club soda or sprite in the trash can because why the fuck would we want to dilute this beautiful creation?
- Frozen grapes
If you use ice to keep the sangria cold, it is now watered down and fucking ruined! Use frozen grapes instead, it’s kind of genius.
Drain the fruits and layer them so they look pretty, if that’s your thing. Yes, OF COURSE you save the drained alcohol. Jesus, why would you throw THAT away? Use it to re-store the fruit when the sangria is all gone and make another batch, duh. Anyway, layer the fruits, add the wine, add the sugar syrup, stir the shit out of it, sit back, relax, and be sure to eat something BESIDES the fruit.
Don’t drink and drive. Be love, always!
