Sangria feels like cheating to me. It’s so easy, it shouldn’t be this great. But, somehow, it totally is. The effort is minimal and the payoff is huge. And that’s the kind of party drink I can get behind.
Domestocrat’s Pomegranate Limeade Sangria
4 cups red wine
4.5 cups Trader Joe’s Pomegranate Limeade
2 tbsp. orange simple syrup
1 orange, cut into slices
3 limes, cut into slices
In four simple steps, you’ll have delicious sangria. As you add your liquids into whatever pitcher you use (I used our beautiful Simon Pearce pitcher that we got as a wedding gift) continually stir your ingredients so they all come together.
Step 1 – Add the wine.
Step 2 – Add the Pomegranate Limeade. (I got this at Trader Joe’s because I thought it looked super delicious but really, any juice will do in sangria.)
Step 3 – Add the orange simple syrup. It’s not a big deal if you don’t want to go through the trouble of making an infused simple syrup, a basic simple syrup recipe will work just as well (equal parts water and sugar reduced down to a syrup).
Step 4 – Cut up the fruit and add to the pitcher.
Enjoy! It doesn’t get any simpler than that.
This sangria is sweet, tangy, and just a wee bit boozey. Very refreshing, smooth, and easy to drink. Delicious!
