There are a few things that instantly come to mind when you think of summer… BBQing, picnics, patios and sangria are the first things that pop into our head. Luckily, we’ve had some beautiful sunny days as of late here in Calgary to kick off summer. Surrounded by beautiful fresh produce and local products here at the market, we can’t help but think of what we’ll throw on the grill when we kick back and relax with friends. It doesn’t quite feel like a backyard celebration without a frosty beverage in hand. And we have a great, simple recipe featuring our local Field Stone Fruit Wines. Glug in some wine, throw in some fruit, serve over ice….. yup, that sounds perfect! Here is our take on Field Stone’s Cheery Cherry Sangria
1 bottle (750 ml) Field Stone Cherry Fruit Wine
4 shots Wild Black Cherry Field Stone Dessert Wine
1 can club soda
*All produce sourced from Souto Farms
Sangria has to be one of the easiest cocktails to make. Grab some good quality ingredients, mix everything together in a pitcher, let sit so all the flavors muddle together, and enjoy! Let’s break it down.
First, add the juice of half of the lemon and lime each to the pitcher. Slice the peach and remaining lemon and lime. Pit and halve the cherries. Throw all fruit into the pitcher.
Glug in the entire bottle of Cherry Fruit Wine.
Add the 4 shots of Wild Black Cherry Dessert Wine. Mix together and chill for at least one hour.
Add club soda just before serving. Pour into a couple of wine glasses, pass to a friend, kick up your feet and enjoy!
