CBD Berry Sangria Recipe
There’s no right or wrong way to make sangria, but there are a few tips every home bartender should consider. First off, when you’re selecting fruit, we recommend you always go with what’s fresh. Look up what fruits are in season in your area, and be sure to stop by your local farmers’ market for the best selection.
Next, you have to consider what wine pairs best with whatever fruit you’re using. Sometimes you can find suggested food pairings on the side of your wine bottle. Many red and white wines work well in sangrias, but a few popular choices include pinot noir, zinfandel, or Riesling.
Lastly, since sangrias best known for cooling you down, it’s best to keep your sangria cold in the fridge for a minimum of four hours. Not only does this help keep your sangria well-chilled, but it also helps the fruit absorb all of those lovely wine flavors.
• 1 full bottle (750 ml) of red wine
• 1 cup sliced strawberries
• 1 cup raspberries
• 1 cup blackberries
• 2 dropperfuls of Tribe CBD oil (citrus)
• 2 – 3 tablespoons of white or brown sugar
• ½ cup brandy
• After washing and slicing your fruit, add it to a large glass pitcher
• Mix in red wine, sugar, brandy, and Tribe CBD oil
• Leave in the fridge for at least four hours
• Serve in wine glasses with a fresh fruit garnish
We should also mention many sangria drinkers like to top their drink with a little effervescence. While unflavored club soda works fine, it’s also common to use citrus-flavored seltzer water or soda. Just be sure to pour your seltzer right before serving to preserve all of those brilliant bubbles.
