  • Servings: 8

Source: Everyday Food, July/August 2010

Ingredients

  • 6 cups assorted fruits (such as mango, pineapple, cantaloupe, and apricot), sliced or cut into chunks
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced peeled fresh ginger
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh basil or mint leaves
  • 1/2 cup orange liqueur, such as Cointreau
  • 1 bottle crisp white wine, such as Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1 lemon)

Directions

  1. In a large bowl or pitcher, combine fruit, ginger, basil or mint, and orange liqueur. Mash gently with the back of a wooden spoon until basil is bruised and fruit releases juices. Add wine and lemon juice and stir to combine. Refrigerate 1 hour (or up to 1 day). To serve, fill eight glasses with ice and top with sangria.

    This is a summer delight. Every time I've made it I have rave reviews and recipe requests. Tinker with it, as Martha suggests, by using different fruits and herbs, just keep the basic ratios similar. You won't be sorry!

    This is really yummy. I made it with Mango, nectarines, pineapple, raspberries and basil, and I will definitely make again. Next time, though, I will double the wine and the liqueur....there is more than enough fruit to handle it.

    When I found this recipe I thought that the ginger and basil idea was very different and definitely wanted to try it out. I am making sangria for my sister's wedding and tested out this sangria recipe and a different sangria recipe at her bridal shower. This was was the winner at the bridal shower! I used the pinot grigio, basil (rather than mint), pineapple, mango, and kiwi. One thing I did do differently is add a can of gingerale to cut back on that strong alcohol taste. 4 STARS!!!
