Drunken Fruit Sangria: A Party in a Pitcher

Share Button

Sangria is a great summer drink and the drunken fruit makes a great dessert. This is more of a concoction than a recipe, so feel free to add or subtract liquor and fruit from this party in a pitcher.

I am not a wine connoisseur, so I’d say as long as you’re not using “box-o-wine”, you’re keeping it classy. (OK, I finally saw Anchorman the other night…)

This is a great way to use some of the liquor you received as a gift at the holidays. Coconut rum, peach schnapps, pear vodka…doesn’t really matter what you use, just experiment ’til you get the Sangria Punch just right.

Here’s what I put in that big glass pitcher in the photo:

  • 1/2 cup peach schnapps
  • 1/2 cup brandy
  • 1/3 cup coconut rum
  • 2  bottles white or blush wine (chilled)
  • 1 12 oz bottle of sparkling water (chilled)
  • Sliced fruit (use all or some of them, the more the better)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small orange
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 lb. of fresh strawberries
  • 1 fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 1 12 oz bottle of sparkling water, chilled

Combine all of the ‘booze’ together in a large pitcher. Add fruit and gently stir to keep fruit from breaking apart.

Cover and chill for about 3- 4 hours, longer if you are able to.

Serve in big wine goblets with some of the fruit and a lot of the liquor.

Serve small bowls of the leftover fruit if the party goes on for awhile. It’s potent. Don’t drink and drive. Thanks :)
