Ingredients

  • Blueberries a few handfuls
  • 2 1/2 C White Wine such as Chardonnay I like Bonterra 558g
  • 1/2 C Cointreau 105g
  • 1 C Mango small dice, 150g
  • 4 Pieces of Lime sliced thin
  • Fist-ful of Mint
  • Simple Syrup see note
  • Club Soda

Instructions

  • Place the blueberries on a small pan (I use a cake pan) and place it in the freezer at least an hour before serving the sangria.
  • In a large Ball jar (2 Quart Size or 946 mL) add the wine, cointreau, mango and lime. Stir. Add a few springs of mint. Place jar in fridge to chill, for at least eight hours. Replace mint sprig with fresh before serving.
  • To serve, give the jar a good shake or stir. Place ice in a low ball or small ball jar. Fill 1/2 -2/3 full of sangria and a few chunks of mango. Add simple to taste - I usually add about 1/2 ounce (14g) as this will depend on taste and sweetness of fruit. Top off with club soda. Stir. Add 4-5 frozen blueberries and a sprig of fresh mint.

Notes

*To make simple syrup, in a small saucepan, add one part water to one part sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer until the sugar is dissolved. Pour into a lidded container and store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
