Sake sangria and red wine sangria

Forget Saketinis, there’s another fruit and sake combination you should consider mixing for your next dinner party: Sake Sangria. Easy to prepare and perfect for the summer season, the key to this recipe is the game-changing Crop Organic Cucumber Flavored Vodka. Serve the drink on its own, or better yet, offer it in tandem with the No-Soak Red Wine Sangria.

Ingredients

  • 1 large bottle sake
  • ¾ bottle of a 750 ml bottle of Crop Organic Cucumber Vodka
  • ¼ bottle (750 ml) St-Germain
  • 1 bottle Cava
  • Splash of Domaine de Canton French Ginger Liqueur
  • Splash of Choya Wine
  • 4 Asian pears, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • 1 bunch green grapes, grapes each sliced in half
  • 1 can lychees with juice

Directions

In a large serving bowl or pitcher, combine the sake, vodka, St-Germain, and Cava. Add a splash of the Domaine de Canton and Choya Wine.

Add chopped pears, cucumbers, grapes and the can of lychees with juice to liquor. Stir, and then pour into ice-filled glasses to serve.

Sangria Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Sangria Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
