Abt-solutely Delicious: Spring Sangria

The arrival of spring means different things to different people: the start of baseball season, a chance to clean out the house, or, of course, a new reason to brunch. If you’re ready to dust off the patio furniture and have the gang over for a sunny Sunday afternoon meal, this Spring Sangria is a guaranteed hit. It’s made with fresh fruits and natural ingredients, and while our version uses non-alcoholic sparkling grape juice, just sub in some red wine or brandy for an adult version. If you’re looking for some Easter Sunday recipe inspiration, this Sangria also pairs well with last week’s mini quiches. You won’t need much time to prep the ingredients, but the sangria does need to chill for a couple hours, so we suggest making this before doing any cooking, or even the night before.

    According to your recipe you’re only using 1 cup of the grape juice (or wine). What happens to the other 3 cups of juice or wine? “In a blender, blend together 1 cup white grape juice and 1/4 cup of blueberries. Once blended, pour into a large mason jar or punch bowl. Add orange juice and lime juice to the mason jar, stir until combined. Slice up limes, oranges, bananas, and peaches, then add sliced fruit and the remaining blueberries to the mason jar. Let the mixture chill in refrigerator for about 2 hours. Pour into a pitcher with ice, and enjoy!” All this in a 16oz mason jar?

      Sorry for the confusion, you add the remaining grape juice (or wine) into the mason jar with the orange juice and lime juice. Thank you for commenting and we have added that correction to our blog post. Also, we were using a large half gallon (64 oz.) mason jar for our sangria. We added the ice right before serving instead while it was chilling, either is fine. Also, you should note that not all of the fruit may fit into a 64 oz mason jar, so feel free to use a picture or other serving container. 🙂
