If you’re looking for a simple cocktail to make for party guests, this is the one. Buy a bottle of Mija Sangria and make a refreshing and cooling drink that will only take you minutes to make — serve it in a punch bowl or glasses. 

Ingredients

  • 4 pieces of luxardo cherries
  • 1/4 Ounce simple syrup
  • 1 Ounce bourbon, such as Four Roses Yellow Bourbon
  • 1.5 Ounces Mija Sangria
  • Soda water, to fill up glass

Directions

Muddle 2 cherries and simple syrup in a shaker tin. Add bourbon and Mija Sangria to tin, add ice, and hard shake for 45 seconds. Dump the mixture into a highball glass and top with soda water. Garnish with 2 luxardo cherries on a toothpick.

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.
