Oh I Love That Sangria Wine!
We grew up listening to Jerry Jeff Walker. We love his music and to help us celebrate his life, we have been listening to his music a lot since we heard of his passing. And nothing goes better with his music than a glass of Sangria wine! Oh I love that Sangria wine!
Our friend and new wine club member, Jessica Dupuy, recently wrote a wonderful new cookbook, and in it she has a great recipe for Sangria wine. Her recipe starts with citrus and a seasonal fruit garnish. She typically uses a white and sparkling wine to make a Sangria Blanco, but this time she opted to use our "berry-licious" Sandy Road Vineyards Estate Petnat!
Jessica says that the key is to marinate your citrus in Tequila for a little while before stirring everything up. You can find the full recipe and many more in her new cookbook United Tastes of Texas. You can get a special signed copy of her cookbook on her website here.
If you are looking for a fun way to celebrate, raise a glass of Sangria wine and give a toast to Jerry Jeff Walker.
