Lazy Girl Sangria

Lazy Girl Sangria |

I feel like I’m the queen of lazy cocktails.  You can constantly find me using  jam  instead  of simple syrup for a quick-fix cocktail.

Let’s back up before the lip-stick smudged glass, wine ring stains on my counter, and spent citrus segments all happened.  This drink was born from my laziest habit:  the last pours of wine in the bottle.  I no longer finish a bottle in one night (hallelujah!), but often, I forget to properly seal my wine.  So, instead of pouring this crimson gold down the sink, I make it a little fruity.  This sangria-tization method is so super fast and simple that it will make you want to turn every glass of wine into sangria!  Wait, should I patent ‘sangriatization?’

If I make a pitcher of sangria, I will surely drink the entire pitcher, ergo I’m in love with this single-serving, lazy gal sangria.  My drink recipes usually serve two, but I have a hard time getting the men folk to drink sangria.  I can’t figure out why.  It’s fresh fruit + booze + wine.  How is this considered unacceptable for men?  Any how, more for us girls.

Go on, sangriatize the world!  And yes, you can certainly use white wine, too.  Can I suggest peaches with white wine?  Oh, I think I feel another round of sangriatization coming on!

    I don’t think we can be friends anymore. What is the one thing I have been craving since pregnancy?? SANGRIA!!! And of course this pops up in my feed this morning. Ohh you are truly evil.

    (I am saving this for August. As soon as the girls are here, I am having sangria…and it is definitely going to need to be the lazy girl version!)

    You should most definitely patent Sangriatization! And you no longer finish the bottle, because you’ve got too many friends to share it with. I was smiling at 6:45am when I saw this in my newsfeed. I know a few places where we can make this over the summer. Happy Monday, Beautiful!

    Thankfully my boy does love sangria. Or maybe not so thankfully because that means I’ll have to share my sangriatization creations with him!

    I see nothing lazy about this..I think innovative is more appropriate! I discovered the use of jam in cocktails a couple of years ago…OK, so maybe the jam part is lazy because I don’t have to shop for berries, muddle them, cook them, strain them…how is that bad? :)

    You and I are kindred souls in regard to lazy. It’s a good lazy. We have too much busy in our life already. So simple is good. Also I don’t polish
    off a bottle of wine by myself, so this works for me—–especially during the warm weather.

    This looks like a super simple recipe which is perfect for me. I live in India and dont have the same selection of berries available. What can I use instead of Raspberries and orange liqueur?
    I’m sure I’ll find the orange liqueur but always nice to know of an appropriate substitue.

    Just made 3 beautiful servings! I am a huge fan of Sangria and this is my new favorite :) Each sip was delicious :) I like extra sweet so I used diet 7up instead of club soda ;) Thank you so much for the great recipe!
