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.
Meanwhile, slice the oranges, pour the wine into a pitcher, and drop the orange slices and mint leaves into the pitcher.
