Margarita Sangria

It’s been so hot here this summer. I remember going on vacation to the Okanagan to get these kind of temps as a kid. I’ve been living on our deck with a cold drink in hand.

This has become my new favourite summer cocktail. It’s light refreshing and not too sweet. It’s a hybrid of my two favourite adult beverages margaritas and sangria. And since it’s Friday I’ll be whipping up a pitcher.

This sangria has orange, lime and strawberries. The fruit is soaked in tequila and rosé to infuse the drink with a sweet fruit flavour. I then serve the sangria over ice and top with soda for a hint of fizziness.

What’s you favourite Summer drink?
