Sangria is a traditional Spanish drink that combines wine and fresh fruit. This Mexican-style raspberry tequila sangria has a higher alcohol content than most sangrias (great for pairing with spicy foods) and is as much a margarita as it is a sangria.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle white wine (preferably Spanish or Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Gris)
  • 1 cup tequila (silver)
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 1/4 cup lime juice (fresh)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 pints raspberries (fresh, or a 10 ounces frozen package, thawed)
  • 24 ounces ginger ale (2 cans)
  • Garnish: lime wedges

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Place raspberries in a small bowl and mash with a wooden spoon or muddler.

  3. Add the white wine, tequila, triple sec, and lime juice to a large glass pitcher.

  4. Stir in the sugar and continue stirring until completely dissolved.

  5. Stir in the mashed raspberries.

  6. Cover the pitcher with plastic wrap and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.

  7. Just before serving, stir in the ginger ale and top off with ice.

  8. Strain the sangria into wine or margarita glasses.

  9. Add a wedge of lime to the rim of each glass.

  10. Serve and enjoy!

Tip

  • Always use a wine you would enjoy when making sangria as it will be the most prominent flavor.
