This is what Isabel says about her Sparkling Strawberry Sangria:
This recipe for Sparkling Strawberry Sangria is a much lighter version than the traditional Portuguese sangria. It’s perfect for a fun afternoon and it pairs perfectly with anything chocolate.
- 6 Florida Strawberries, sliced
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 4 mint leaves (chocolate mint leaves if you can find them) , chopped fine
- 1 small bottle(375 ml) of sparkling red wine or champagne (I used Rosa Regale and it was fantastic) 1 cup ginger ale
- 1 cup vodka
- 1 lime sliced thin
- Mint leaves for garnish
- Additional Florida Strawberries for garnish
Combine the sliced Florida Strawberries, sugar and 4 chopped mint leaves in a pitcher.
Gently stir and let sit in the refrigerator for a minimum of 2 hours.
Add the sparkling wine, ginger ale, vodka and 4 slices of lime.
Using a wooden spoon still until well blended.
Chill or add ice and serve cold.
Garnish with additional Florida Strawberries, mint or lime slices.
