This cool and refreshing Sangria Ice is a perfect summer treat for grown ups!
The recipe is created by making a simple sangria, a traditional Spanish combination of fruit and wine. After the fruit infuse the wine with their juices the mixture is frozen for a delicious summer dessert.
I made a red wine sangria using Cabernet Sauvingnon with a frozen bag of mixed blackberries, blueberries and raspberries, along with an orange.
I let the fruit sit in the wine in the refrigerator overnight, and then pressed them through a seize to get lots of fruity flavor in the Sangria Ice. The resulting frozen dessert had a a subtle taste of wine along with a hint of orange and berries.
It takes a little while to make, since you have to let the flavors mingle, but the time is mostly hands off, waiting, and the result it worth the wait.
- 1 cup dry red wine
