Posh Bird Sangria – I love Sangria

Posh Bird Sangria

Let the sun shine –  please! Then I can make this Posh Bird Sangria!!

Here we have a lovely twist on a tradition sangria recipe. We called it ‘Posh’  Sangria, as it has  a wonderful blend of Strawberry Pimms and watermelon – so so good. Watermelon is so good for you and gives this drink the most wonder flavour, light and refreshing too! With all the chopped fruit that’s added – it’s almost healthy right? Please give it a try. Such a refreshing change from wine and beer and it looks so elegant in a nice jug or pitcher on any drinks table in the garden.

Remember a top tip, don’t add loads of ice to the jug as it simply waters it down. Ad ice to the glass then pour it over the ice and knock it back… not too quickly mind

The definition of sangria according to Wikipedia is an alcoholic beverage of Spanish origin. A punch, the sangria traditionally consists of red wine and chopped fruit, often with other ingredients such as orange juice or brandy. So now you know!

Have a go at our Sangria recipe you won’t regret it! And if you fancy a lovely light sangria why not try our Easy Champagne Sangria it’s flipping lovely!

Ingredients

Serves 4

In an ideal world it’s best to make this 1 hour ahead

  • Watermelon – cut into slices or little squares
  • Handful of strawberries – halved or quartered
  • 1 orange – cut into sliced rounds and halved
  • 1/4 bottle of Strawberry Pimms
  • 1 bottle of Cava – dry not sweet

Preparation Method

  1. Put all the fruit ( strawbs and watermelon in bite size chunks) in a jug and cover with about 150ml of Pimms.
  2. Stir it up and leave in a fridge for at least 1 hour so the fruit soaks up the Pimms
  3. Take out of fridge and stir the fruit again Top up the jug with Cava – about half a bottle
  4. Fill some glasses with ice and pour Posh Bird in, adding the fruit – it’s delicious to munch on when your glass is empty
  5. Beware – don’t add ice to the jug it just waters everything down
