May’s Bucket List : Make Spring Sangria

Welcome to the first dat of May ! And time for my bucket list : So it’s going to be a beautifal day outside and I am having a few friends over later to enjoy the patio- so I am making some Strawberry Sangria -using up the last of my fresh Louisiana berries.

Strawberry Sangria

Strawberry Simple Syrup

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries sliced
  • ½ cup water
  • ⅓ cup sugar

Sangria

  • Strawberry Simple Syrup recipe above
  • 1 bottle white wine
  • ½ cup club soda or more to taste
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries sliced
  • ½ orange sliced
  • Fresh mint leaves

Prepare strawberry simple syrup:

  • In a medium-sized pot over high heat, combine sliced strawberries, water and sugar. Allow mixture to come to a boil and let it boil for 5 minutes. Then turn heat to low and allow mixture to simmer for 10 minutes.
  • Place a sieve on top of a glass bowl. Carefully pour strawberry mixture into the sieve, allowing liquid to flow into glass bowl. Use the back of a spoon to lightly press strawberries, extracting all liquid. 
  • Allow strawberry simple syrup to chill in refrigerator until cold. Can be stored in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Assembly

  • When ready to make sangria, combine strawberry simple syrup, white wine, club soda, sliced strawberries, sliced oranges, and mint leaves in a large pitcher. Stir to combine. If serving right away, add ice. Otherwise, refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
