Strawberry Mint Sangria

I loaded up on strawberries this weekend at the farmers’ market.  It was a busy Memorial Day weekend, so I was not able to do as much cooking as I would have liked, but I did manage to do a couple strawberry recipes – this strawberry sangria and a strawberry rhubarb tart I’ll post soon.  I do hope to get another big batch of berries this weekend to make strawberry jam and ideally can a few jars.  We’ll see how that ambitious plan turns out…

The perfect drink for the Memorial Day BBQ I was headed to.

Strawberry Mint Sangria

  • 1 bottle white wine (I used a fairly dry Sauvignon Blanc)
  • 1/2 bottle rose wine (again, I used a fairly dry one)
  • 3/4 cup Triple Sec
  • 1/4 cup simple syrup
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 lime, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup mint, roughly tore up

Mix all ingredients together in a pitcher.  Let flavors come together for at least 2 hours before serving.  Serve over ice.
