J and I wanted to do something a little different for the bar, so we served a signature drink that was uniquely “us” to our guests – strawberry sangria (yum!)
It was a beautiful pink color and was displayed in a large glass decanter atop the bar. Each drink was garnished with a strawberry of its own. It was delicious AND beautiful. Here’s the recipe:
2 boxes (10 oz each) frozen sliced strawberries in syrup, thawed
1 can (12 oz) frozen orange, strawberry and banana fruit juice concentrate, thawed
2 bottles (750 ml each) blush white Zinfandel wine, chilled
4 cans (12 oz each) lemon-lime carbonated beverage, chilled
Fresh whole strawberries, halved
- To make strawberry puree, place strainer over medium bowl; pour strawberries and syrup into strainer. Press mixture with back of spoon through strainer to remove seeds; discard seeds.
- In 3-quart nonmetal bowl or pitcher, mix strawberry puree, fruit juice concentrate and wine.
- Just before serving, stir in carbonated beverage. Serve in wine glasses over ice. Garnish each serving with strawberry half.
If you were to serve a signature drink, what would you choose?
