The summer heat can be brutal and unforgiving. However, HottyToddy.com has the perfect solution to cool you down—sangria.
Sangria is a traditional Spanish punch that usually consists of fresh fruit and red wine, and occasionally it will also have orange juice and brandy.
We’ve decided to give the sangria our very own twist with white wine, vodka and fresh fruit for the perfect poolside cocktail.
Ingredients:
-750 ml bottle of white wine (we recommend a sauvignon blanc)
– 1/4 cup white sugar
-Loosely picked mint leaves
-1/3 cup water
– Mixture fresh fruit (we suggest a mixture of strawberries, blueberries and raspberries)
-1 cup of vodka
Directions:
| Prep 10 minutes | Cook 1 minute | Ready 1 hour and 15 minutes |
Stir together sugar, water and torn mint in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Simmer 1 minute, then cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Strain syrup mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, pushing mint with a spoon to extract as much liquid as possible. Discard mint leaves. Chill syrup until ready to use.
Pour the bottle of white wine into a pitcher and add the cup of vodka and simple syrup.
Add fresh fruit and chill at least 30 minutes and up to 4 hours until you’re ready to serve.
