Need a Little Sangria de Mayo Tonight?

We got you covered. Even though this is technically a Spanish favorite, normally made with Spanish wine and brandy, we’re going to call it Mexican since we are using the wonderful Mexican Presidente brandy and some Argentinian Malbec. It’s close enough. Just like our measuring system. It’s open to interpretation.
Combine in a medium pitcher:
4-5 glugs, any drinkable red wine.  We are using a really cheap Argentinian Malbec. Our guests will never know.
4-5 glugs, apple juice.
2-3 glugs, orange juice.
1-2 glugs, Presidente brandy.
1-2 glugs, triple sec (orange liquor).
1-2 glugs, club soda or San Pellegrino.
1 splash, lemon juice.
1 splash, St. Germaine (grapefruit liquor – optional).
1 splash, jalapeño juice (REALLY optional).
Lots of cut up random fruit. Extra points if you have citrus or mangoes, but anything will do.

  1. I may go one round with Jose Curevo tonight.

    • Only one? I’m burning through some Hornitos & lime, myself, right now. But I’m not measuring, so who knows how many rounds I’m good for? I’ll try not to doing any photoshopping, just to be safe.

    I’ll stick to a big plate of nachos – heavy on the jalapenos. Yum
