Summer is sort of one long sangria recipe. Company's coming? What's in the fruit basket and the liquor cabinet? I'm pretty sure a winning combination can be found. I was really happy with this spur of the moment sangria because (it tasted great) it gave me a chance to use last summers preserved cherries. They were closing in on the end of their shelf life and I was worrying about that lonely jar, no longer though! One long summer evening of spontaneous cocktails later and I'm planning my next batch of sweet cherries preserved in liquor.
2 bottles rosé wine
8 fl oz cherry brandy
2 fl oz juice from preserved cherries (cointreau)
1/2 cup cherries preserved in cointreau (or any liquor)
15 halved and pitted fresh yellow/pink cherries
2 tbs honey
- combine all ingredients, stir well. Let sit for about half an hour in the fridge and then have yourself a nice evening!
