I have been on a huge sangria kick lately. It’s like I can’t get enough sangria in my life.
The thing is, I never really used to be a sangria drinker. When someone would make some for a party or there was sangria on the menu at a restaurant I might indulge and have a glass or two.
But I never really thought about it beyond that.
As I have also explained before… I had an irrational fear of making my own sangria. Thinking I would screw it up royally and all my friends and family would never want me to make sangria again.
Well, I haven’t (yet) screw it up and so far everyone loves it.
Especially my girlfriends when they come over for Bachelor/Bachelorette night and I have a fresh pitcher of sangria waiting.
Just because it’s a Tuesday and I felt like making a new sangria recipe for this blog. Or mainly just because I can’t get enough now. And day drinking and weekday drinking are in full effect now that it’s summer.
My love for sangria has really only grown because I live here in Michigan and there are about 10 wineries within a 10 mile radius of my house.
Seriously, how can someone not want to make sangria and enjoy all the amazing local wines?
So, today I bring you Peach Mango Sangria. Perfect for these long summer days and with just the right amount of sweetness to make it light and fruity but not overpoweringly sweet.
Of course you can make it as sweet as you want, but I prefer a dryer and less sweet sangria. If it’s too sweet then it just goes down like lemonade and we have a problem waking up the next day.
So go and make this for your next backyard BBQ… all your family and friends will love you for it!
