Strawberry Tequila Sangria
Say hola to your new favorite summer sipper.
I love entertaining, but I also love enjoying my own party, so I usually make drinks that can be self-served. As the hostess, I rather not play bartender, shaking and serving cocktails all night long. As much as I love a good martini or mojito, I love hanging out with my guests and avoiding spills on my white kitchen counter even more. (I’m a tad OCD when it comes to my counter, but that’s a whole ‘nother Oprah!)
This pitcher drink is the ultimate refreshing summer cocktail with sweet strawberries, orange slices and fresh mint leaves, which all add up to a white sangria that will brighten up any fiesta. The secret to this sangria is the strawberry infused tequila; it adds fruity flavor to a refreshing drink that practically begs to be shared. And unlike traditional sangria made with red wine, brandy, sweetener and spices, this version is light and fruity, making it a perfectly refreshing pre-dinner cocktail. It’s so simple to make, and can easily be doubled or tripled. Here’s how it’s done!
Start by slicing up the freshest strawberries you can find.
