I got a lovely bottle of Sawmill Creek Autumn Blush for a BzzAgent campaign and decided to do something fun with it.
I drew inspiration from a recipe I found on (where else?) Pinterest. The colours in Gimme Some Oven's Rainbow Sangria were so striking and inviting that I just had to try something like that for myself. Unfortunately, my photos are never as beautiful as the ones on Pinterest, but I was really happy with the way this turned out, pretty to look at and delicious to drink.
I used this 5L glass dispenser I got on sale for $14.99 at Kitchen Stuff Plus. The recipe below has quantities to fill this container. If yours is smaller, adjust quantities as you see fit.
For the raspberries and grapes (or any other fruit that you will not peel) I recommend you buy organic or at the very least wash them with soap and water to get as much of the pesticides off as possible. Remember that they will be sitting in a liquid that you will be ingesting for quite some time.
Remember, you can use any kind of fruit that you like - pineapples would probably be really nice in this, but I'm allergic to them so I can't add them.
Also, I suggest that you wash and prep the grapes the night before and freeze them. They will keep your sangria cold without watering down your drink.
1 bottle Sawmill Creek Autumn Blush wine (1500 ml)
1/2 cup organic honey
2 cups Sprite (or 7-Up or Gingerale)
6 kiwis, peeled and sliced
4 navel oranges, peeled and chopped into chunks
3 meyer lemons, peeled and chopped
2 pints raspberries
1 pomegranate, seeded
1 bag black seedless grapes
1. In a large container (not the serving jug), combine the honey, pop and wine and stir well.
2. In your dispenser, layer your fruit: grapes, kiwi, oranges, lemons, raspberries and pomegranate seeds.
3. Pour wine mixture over your fruit and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes to allow the flavours to meld.
Final step: Enjoy!
The bottle of Autumn Blush was offered free of charge from the good people at Sawmill Creek Wines and BzzAgent with the expectation of an honest review, favorable or otherwise.
