Strawberry, lemon and lime must be the perfect trio of summery flavors. Look at all the candies and desserts that feature this combination! Here they combine to create a delicious sangria sensation.
You can make this with either red or white wine depending on your tastes. White wine will be lighter and have the added benefit that you can see the fruit floating around in the glass.
1 750ml bottle red or white wine
1 whole sliced orange
1 whole sliced lemon
1 whole sliced lime
3/4 cup sugar, or more or less to taste
6 oz soda water
3/4 oz Grand Marnier
6-8 fresh strawberries, halved
Slice orange, lemon and lime thinly into pitcher. Pour in the wine, then add the sugar. Stir well. Add in the liqueur and again stir well. Finally add in the strawberries.
Cool overnight in refrigerator. Right before serving add chilled soda water and ice cubes.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.
