It’s almost the weekend and in places other than the Bay Area, I hear it’s really warm and summery outside (if only!).
In celebration of the weekend and kicking back, I’m sharing a Women’s Health Magazine recipe that I tried out on the 4th of July. Everyone loved it (even the guys) and it’s a great drink for a hot day.
Anyway, I modified the recipe just a bit in places; instead of garnishing each drink with a few berries, I crushed the berries and let them sit in the sangria overnight. I also only used 1/2 cup of agave nectar instead of the 1 c. the recipe calls for and it was definitely sweet enough since the berries’ natural sweetness did the rest.
Have a great weekend!
1 cup agave syrup
1 bottle rose wine
1 bunch mint
Syrup: Cut up lemon and lime, then combine in a jar with agave and 1 cup boiling water. Let cool; strain.
Sangria: Mix syrup, wine, mint, and berries in a pitcher. Serve over ice and garnish each glass with a few berries.
