If you don’t tell anyone this is made with Cheerwine, they’d likely never know. If you asked them if this is one of best sangrias they’ve ever had, they’d probably say yes. It doesn’t taste overwhelmingly like Cheerwine but it adds a few extra flavors that put this recipe over the top.
- 1 Bottle of Spanish red wine
- 4 oz Triple sec or any orange liqueur
- 2 oz Brandy
- 1 tsp Cherry bitters
- 4 oz. Frozen peaches, chopped
- 4 oz. Frozen mango, chopped
- 8–10 Basil leaves, torn in large pieces
- 1 Orange, halved and quartered
- 1 Orange, halved and thinly sliced
- 2 (12oz) Chilled cans Cheerwine
- Stir red wine, triple sec, brandy, cherry bitters, frozen peaches, frozen mango, and basil together in a large pitcher and chill at least 4 hours.
- When ready to serve, skim the basil off the surface with a spoon or small strainer.
- Divide the fruit from the pitcher into 8 large wine glasses and top with 4 oz of the wine mixture, followed by 3 oz of Cheerwine in each glass.
- Finish by squeezing an orange quarter into each glass, and garnish with an orange slice.
