Camping Sangria Recipe

Camping Sangria Recipe

Let me just start out by saying that this goes down a little too easily! I highly recommend making lots of friends around the campsite and sharing this tasty little beverage. Especially if you plan to eat any of the fruit, a cup or two will be plenty. Trust me. OK, so this recipe is specifically designed to travel; you'll just need a quart-sized mason jar, a 1-gallon pitcher and a wine cork. Here's how to create your batch:

Ingredients:
2 peaches, sliced
8-10 strawberries, sliced
1 cup of white or red grapes
1 (750ml) bottle of white or red wine
1 (750ml) bottle of vodka (you will have leftover)
1-liter of Fresca (You can try other soda flavors too!)

Directions
1. Fill up the mason jar with peaches, strawberries and grapes.

2. Pour in vodka a 1/4 of the way up the jar. Fill up the remainder of the jar with wine; cork the rest of your wine.

3. Chill sangria concentrate overnight or at least for several hours.

4. Pack up the sangria concentrate, 1-liter bottle of Fresca and remaining wine in an insulated bag. When you get to the campsite, mix all 3 together in the pitcher and enjoy!

Remember to drink responsibly!

  4. For white wine I use three types of Apples, (Granny Smith,Honeycrisp and pink lady) then add limes and oranges sliced thin. It's very light and refreshing on hot summer days

  9. We use to make a variation of this we called Hunch Punch. Try using a citrus vodka and pineapple rum instead of wine. It works very well.
