#1 Frozen Sangria
1 bottle of white wine
1 and ½ cups of frozen lemonade
1 cup of frozen strawberries
1/3 cup of rum
lemon pieces for decoration
First you need to freeze half of the white wine in some ice cubes forms. You can do the same with the lemonade. Once they are frozen enough you need to get a blender and put the wine ice cubes in it.
Add the frozen lemonade and the frozen strawberries in the blender as well. And lastly you need to add the 1/3 cup of rum. And then you need to blend all the ingredients in the blender until it becomes a smooth mixture.
And voila, the sangria will be ready. You can serve it in a cocktail glass and you can also decorate the glass with a round piece of lemon. The drink is a very cold one so it would be a perfect drink for the hot summer nights.
#2 Berries sangria
1 cup of blackberries
1 cup of strawberries
1 cup of blueberries
1 bottle of red wine
1 cup of brandy
3 cups of apple juice
2 cups of lemon-lime soda
The next wine recipe is again a sangria type of one. This time there are fresh fruits included and not frozen ones. What you need to do is wash the fruits well. Then get a big jug and put the blackberries, the blueberries, and the strawberries inside.
There is no need to cut the blackberries and blueberries into pieces since they are small enough, but you can cut the strawberries at least in halves beforehand.
After that you need to add the whole bottle of red wine in the jug. Add the brandy and the apple juice as well. Then you need to mix all the ingredients in the jug well. Once this is done you need to put the jug in the fridge for about 4 hours.
After this time has passed you can get the jug out of the fridge and add the lemon-lime soda in it as well. Mix the sangria well once again and voila, the drink is ready.
You can serve it in cocktail glasses. Do not forget to add some of the fruits of the sangria in the glass when you serve the cocktail. If you want to make the cocktail prettier, you can decorate the glass with a piece of fresh strawberry.
#3 Gelatin Ice Cubes with Berries
1 cup of rosè
½ cup of sugar
1 and ½ ounces of gelatin powder
4 pieces of strawberries
15 pieces of blueberries
15 pieces of raspberries
To prepare these interesting gelatin ice cubes you need first to microwave the cup of rose for a minute. When it is ready you need to add into the cup of wine the sugar and the gelatin powder. Mix them carefully until the sugar melts.
After that you need to get empty ice-cube forms. Cover 1/3 of each ice cube form with the wine mixture. Then you need to wash the fruits well.
Cut the strawberries in a few pieces – as many as the number of ice cubes. After that put a piece of two in each one of the forms. Then add the blueberries – 1 or 2 in each ice cube form.
Do the same with the raspberries. If they are too big, you can cut them in half as well. When all the fruits are in the ice cube forms, you need to put it in the freezer for about an hour at least.
When they are ready you can remove them from the freezer and add them in your glass of wine. They are very suitable for rosè, white wine, or champag
