Love Sangria? Try this Mexican Sangria made with tequila for a new take on the classic drink.
I promised in my Fried Tequila-Peach Hand Pie post to share a recipe for Mexican Sangria. This will be a super short post since this is a pretty straight forward recipe. As I mentioned in that other post, we had Mexican Sangria while we were vacationing in the spectacular Mexican city of Tulum. Sure, the picture postcard beach location may have influenced our tastebuds, but we all loved this take on sangria.
We had a version made with white wine that day in Tulum, but since I love to drink rosé wine in the summer that’s what I’ve been using. I think either a white or rosé works best with the tequila. As a special treat you get to eat the marinated peaches after the sangria is all gone!
So make a quick pitcher to enjoy with some friends while the weather is still warm. Just close your eyes, take a sip, and pretend your on a white sandy beach….
- 1 bottle rose or white wine
- 1-2 peaches and/or plums
- 1-2 limes
- 1/4 cup good tequila
- 1-2 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 8 oz club soda
- Combine the fruit, wine and tequila in a large pitcher
- Add the sugar to taste
- Refrigerate for at least 2-3 hours
- Add the club soda and serve cold
