Need a Little Sangria de Mayo Tonight?

We got you covered. Even though this is technically a Spanish favorite, normally made with Spanish wine and brandy, we’re going to call it Mexican since we are using the wonderful Mexican Presidente brandy and some Argentinian Malbec. It’s close enough. Just like our measuring system. It’s open to interpretation.
Sang2
Combine in a medium pitcher:
4-5 glugs, any drinkable red wine.  We are using a really cheap Argentinian Malbec. Our guests will never know.
4-5 glugs, apple juice.
2-3 glugs, orange juice.
1-2 glugs, Presidente brandy.
1-2 glugs, triple sec (orange liquor).
1-2 glugs, club soda or San Pellegrino.
1 splash, lemon juice.
1 splash, St. Germaine (grapefruit liquor – optional).
1 splash, jalapeño juice (REALLY optional).
Lots of cut up random fruit. Extra points if you have citrus or mangoes, but anything will do.

Salud!

    “glugs” … ROFL I use that same measurement. I was trying to explain what it meant to my dd and she interrupted and said, “I get it.” Yeah. It’s a glug when it goes ::glug:: !!

    I guess it’s okay if I ignore the date after 3 posts about it. 🙂 I’m a bit sad that I didn’t think to blog Star Wars Day though. It was over before I realized why people were posting Star Wars stuff on my Facebook timeline. (May 4 … May the force be with you.)
