So based on the popularity of this post from a few weeks back, it looks like many of you are also big LaCroix fans! Yippee!! Isn’t it just the best!?
I decided to do a little research into a LaCroix Sangria recipe because a few days ago Price and I opened a bottle of cheap red that was less than stellar… So we didn’t care too much about drinking the rest of it. My first thought in situations like that is always SANGRIA!! The search for the perfect recipe was on.
When we were in Barcelona (world capital for good sangria) several years back, we learned that the perfect sangria mixture incorporates just a hint of sugar (not too much!) and an orange liqueur! That goes for red or white, according to Buddha, one of the coolest Spaniards we met over there who shared his sangria knowledge with us over a pitcher of… care to guess…? YEP! Sangria.
After coming up fruitless on a sangria recipe that incorporated red wine, not too much sugar, an orange liqueur, and sparkling water, I just decided to play around on my own. Here’s what I came up! I really like it so I hope y’all do too!
Here’s what ya need! (this makes 4 to 5 servings)
…2 cups red wine
…1 can of grapefruit & cantaloupe LaCroix (although I’m betting almost any flavor would be delicious!)
…1 apple, cut into small pieces
…1/2 cup blueberries
…1/4 cup orange liqueur (I used dry curaçao)
…almost 2 packs of stevia. (I would start with one, do a taste test, then add as you feel led. I ended up with almost, but not quite, 2 packs of stevia.)
Mix all ingredients in a pitcher and refrigerate for at least 4 hours. I thought this was better on day 2, so overnight refrigeration is preferable!
Serve in wine glasses and enjoy!!
Do y’all like sangria!? I love it because it seems appropriate at any time of the year! During summer, you could add citrusy fruits into the mix, and in the winter, you can add things like cranberry and pomegranate! I also associate apple flavor with fall/winter so this particular recipe puts me into a wonderful fall mood! 🙂
Thank y’all so much for stopping by today– it seriously means so much!!
OH! And if you want to try another recipe with dry curaçao (a.k.a. further validate the purchase of a bottle of it), you might like this recipe! It was my summer go-to!
