Apricot Sangria

Apricot Sangria

A good friend of mine just moved into a home with the largest apricot tree I have ever seen. I decided to help her out by taking over 10 pounds home to play with.  The earliest creation? A white sangria kicked up a notch with random ingredients from my kitchen. Hope you enjoy!

2 bottles of cheap, but good, white wine. I used a new Lambrusco Bianco from Trader Joe’s for $3.99

1/2 c sugar

1 c brandy

1oz Cointreau

2 oranges, 1 sliced, 1 juiced

1 Tahitian Vanilla Bean, split

6 apricots, cut in 8ths

1 lemon, sliced

1 grapefruit , sliced (excessive rind removed)

1 lime, sliced

Club Soda

Combine alcohols, juice, and sugar, stir to dissolve. Stir in fruits and let sit in the fridge for 2 hours (well try). Pour over ice and top with club soda.

  1. I never would have thought of adding a vanilla bean to sangria but this was amazing! Definitely one I’ll make again and again.
