Strawberry and Mint Sangria

Strawberry and Mint Sangria

In a previous post I shared with you all that I dressed up as Jellybean for my sister’s 30th Birthday.

Jade’s 30th Birthday

She asked that I make a cocktail for her – so a hunting I went in Pinterest for the perfect one for her.

I was inspired by this pin of Strawberry and Basil Sangria. When I went to the store to buy all of the things needed there was no Basil to be seen so I replaced it with Mint.

Tools of the trade...

Tools of the trade…

Ingredients:

  • 1 punnet of strawberries
  • 1 large pink lady apple
  • 1/2 bunch of mint leaves
  • 1 bottle of Chardonnay
  • 1/2 cup low GI sugar
  • 1 cup soda water
  • 1 cup pink lady apple juice

What to do:

  • Thinly slice the strawberries
  • Dice apple into small bits
  • Put all of the mint leaves in a bowl and stab away at it with a fork – the pin describes this in a much more refine way – but the gist is stab stab stab 🙂
  • In a large jug place the fruit, sugar and mint. Let it marinade for 10-15 minutes
  • Add soda water – gently stir
  • Add apple juice and chardonnay – mix well
  • Enjoy!
