Summertime Wine Cocktails ~ Sangria-On-The-Go!

It's Summertime!  Time for cool refreshing cocktails.  We decided to take some of our favorites, and give them a wine twist.  Part 1 of 3...  here we go!

Sacred Sangria ~ On the Go!

We started with what we know and love, Lost Oak Winery's Sacred Sangria (served every Thursday, paired with live music on the patio in the spring and summer.)  But, what about when you are not at the winery, or it's not Thursday?  Don't deny yourself!  You can easily have Sacred-Sangria-On-the-Go! We are pro's at how to make Sangria in bulk (recipe on Facebook).  Here is what we did for single serves.

  • 1 small to-go sized bottle of Oak Farms orange juice
  • 1 small to-go sized bottle of lemonade 
  • 1 small to-go sized bottle of Sprite (or club soda)
  • 1 bottle of Lost Oak Winery Dolce Rouge

We mixed equal parts of the OJ and lemonade over ice, added the wine and topped off with Sprite.  Don't like it so sweet? Use Club Soda instead of the Sprite.  The great thing about this quick recipe is you can make it totally to taste!  Add more or less wine/juice/or soda.

Have leftover sangria or want to cool it down even more?  We found these amazing Sangria Slushies we are dying to try.

Sangria on a stick?  Yep!  Pour your leftover sangria into a popsicle mold with some fruit, and enjoy a few hours later.

Want white sangria?  Don't forget Pear Sangria from our March blog.

Enjoy your sangria in whichever form you have it, and stay tuned for the next installment of Summer Wine Cocktails ~ Go Texan!

Part 1 of a 3 part Summer Wine Cocktails ~ Go Texan!

Being wine enthusiasts our beverage experience includes knowledge of wine, making of sangria and sipping of other tasty drinking. We knew we needed to keep the recipes simple without too many ingredients, for ease of prep.  A little web surfing got us some great inspiration for these tasty treats.

This summer, get out there, try some things, and Go Texan!  *cheers*
