We’re throwing things way back here with a Classic Red Wine Sangria from the #sugerDRINKS eBook.  Yes, from 2017 and still available as a free download when you sign up for the Suger News. I received an email this week from a recent subscriber who was excited to get making some cocktails (same, what a week). And it reminded me, I haven’t done an update in a while. A long while.

So, let’s welcome back those dark, moody, slightly off-centre images from 2017, shall we? I love these photos, even now, but boy can I see how far I’ve come in terms of composition and editing since then. How’s that for a little reminder that when you feel stuck somewhere, taking a walk down memory lane to see how far you’ve come doesn’t hurt. Neither will some delicious red wine covered fruit. Let’s jump into this, shall we?



What you’ll need

  • Berries, mixed
  • 2 Oranges (1 x sliced 1 x juiced)
  • 1/2 Lime juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 tbsp Sweetener (sugar or honey)
  • 1 cup Ice 1/2 cup Cointreau
  • 2 cups Red wine, dry


What to do

Combine the ingredients; it’s just that simple. Leave it to sit in the jug until ready to serve. How easy is THAT! If it’s warm where you are, freeze the berries and instead of juicing the second orange, cut it into segments and freeze. Or go all out and add a third into the mix. Go nuts. When ready to serve, make sure everything is combined (in the eBook, I said blend, but well, that’s not exactly what I meant, lol) and serve in a large jug with extra fruit if you wish.

The ‘recipe’ for this Classic Red Wine Sangria is from the #sugerDRINKS eBook (available as a free download when you sign up for the Suger News). It’s about time that I got off my butt and updated the offer, I think. So, if you have an idea for a download, printable or something that you’d like as a freebie for subscribers, let me know.
