A pitcher of margarita sangria is perfect for any party including game day, backyard barbecues, and holiday open houses. A light and refreshing option for your guests.
A pitcher of sangria is one of the easiest beverages you’ll ever make. Typically made with brandy, this recipe substitutes silver tequila. Why did I choose a silver tequila, you ask? Well, it keeps this sangria mellow plus using a reposado or añejo would alter the color and I like how crisp this looks.
Sangria is a popular summer beverage but it’s really great for a party any time of year. Make this a holiday sangria by using limes and strawberries for the fruit. The red and green of the fruit is so festive for the season.
If you’re wanting a little less bite and alcohol content, try my white wine sangria, made without the tequila.
- 1 bottle (750 milliliters) white wine (I used a bottle of white sangria)
- 12 ounces lemon-lime soda, I used Sprite
- 1 medium lemon, sliced
- 1 cup good silver tequila
- ½ cup mixed fresh berries
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
In a large pitcher combine all ingredients. Refrigerate until cold, at least 2 hours. Serve over ice with berries and lemon slices in the glasses.
