Cherry Sangria | Sweet and Tart Cherries in a Sangria! This Sangria screams Summer!
I know what you are thinking . . .
. . . . clearly my “It’s Friday! Cheers!” post has been replaced by real in the flesh living booze.
Especially because this is my second week in a row posting a cocktail on a Friday.
What is it about summer that screams refreshing cocktails?
Okay, but this Friday I have a really good excuse.
It’s Meghan’s birthday!! Happy Birthday Meghan!
Have you met Meghan? She blogs over at The Tasty Fork, and she is all sorts of awesome. When you go to visit the birthday girl, and leave her a birthday wish, make sure you check out some of my favorite posts of hers. To name a few, Clean Eating Chicken Salad, Thai Chicken Noodle Salad, Asian Chicken Burrito with Sriracha Peanut Butter Sauce, and Salmon Tacos with Mango Salsa.
I’m so pumped to be headed off to celebrate her birthday with a big pitcher of this Cherry Sangria!
This recipe comes together faster than you can say, “I’ll take five more glasses.” It has that sweet and tart cherry taste, but is cool, refreshing, and perfect for summer.
If you don’t like your drinks too sweet, you can swap out the white soda for club soda. Either way, I’m sure you will find your way to the bottom of the pitcher quickly, so make sure you make double!
- 750ml bottle of Moscato (I use Barefoot)
- 1/3 cup of Amaretto Liqueur
- 1 (12 oz) bag of frozen cherries (I got mine at Target)
- white soda (I use Diet Sierra Mist)
- Mix together the wine, the amaretto, and the cherries and let sit overnight. Note that this recipe actually tastes best two days past making it, though it is delicious after one night in the fridge.
- Serve the sangria topped with the white soda (or club soda for a less sweet drink). I did about two parts sangria to every one part soda.
