Sumptuous Sunset Sangria

28 Oct

In celebration of our beautiful new apartment and our first dinner party here, I mixed together a sangria. The sunset setting over the ocean (Yes, we have an ocean view!) was so gorgeous, I was simply inspired.

This sangria calls for three types of Italian liquers. Don’t be intimidated, you can easily find them at your local Beverages and More. The final flavor of the cocktail is suave, weighty and delicious. Perfect for a party!

Tuscan Sangria (From Food and Wine Magazine)

1 bottle of Tuscan wine like Sangiovese

3 cups fresh orange juice

3/4 cup Tuaca (vanilla-and-citrus liqueur)

1/3 cup Punt e Mes (Italian vermouth)

1/2 cup lime juice

1/2 cup Limoncello

1/4 cup sugar

Orange slices for garnish.


Mix everything in a pitcher. Serve over ice!

    The Tuaca sounds like an excellent addition! I usually use this one in some form or other:

    Tuaca is hard to find in Queens, but if you stick a vanilla bean in the pot when making that sugar syrup – it might be just as good…
