This Red Sangria Recipe = Total Eclipse Of Your Bar July 13, 2018
You know what pairs perfectly with the upcoming lunar holiday? Our stellar red sangria recipe, inspired by this month’s Wine Club picks.
So just what is a lunar eclipse, you ask? Basically, it’s when the earth moves between the sun and the moon, creating a shadow on the latter’s surface. And on the evening of July 27, we’re set to see the longest eclipse in a century!
Even cooler, this one will be a blood moon — a phenomenon that occurs when the eclipse casts a shadow and gives the moon a reddish, coppery color.
We’d say that calls for a celebration, or at least a little something to sip on while you take it all in. And we have the perfect cosmic red sangria recipe for you.
- 1 Bottle Red Wine (we recommend a fruity bottle, like this pinot noir)
- 1/2 Cup Brandy
- 1/4 Cup Triple Sec
- 1/2 – 1 Cup(s) Pomegranate Juice
- 1 Pint Blueberries
- 1 Grapefruit, thinly sliced (skin on)
- 1 Apple, thinly sliced
- Optional: a sprig of rosemary for garnish if you’re feeling fancy!
- Add all the liquids together in a pitcher and stir to combine.
- Add the fruit, then stir again.
Watch it all come to life below. P.S. — we threw in a white wine version, too. Because let’s be honest, one is never enough.
