The weather is warming up, the sun is bright in the sky, now all you need is something refreshing to sip on. Craft this simple, crisp spring cocktail from home using Apple Pear wine from Rowe Ridge Vineyard & Winery in the Village West Area of Kansas City, KS. Rowe Ridge is currently offering carryout and curbside bottles of wine. 

Springtime Sangria

Ingredients (makes 6):

  • 1 750ml bottle of Rowe Ridge Apple Pear Wine 

  • ⅓  cup of brandy 

  • 12 oz soda water/Prosecco

  • 1 cup strawberries (quartered) 

  • 1 orange 

  • 1 green apple

  • ⅓  cup pomegranate seeds 

  • Ice 

Springtime Sangria

Steps: 

Fill a gallon jug or pitcher about ⅓ of the way with ice.  Chop all fruit to your liking (quartered, diced, etc.) and add to pitcher. Make sure to save some for garnish in the end. 

Pour in ⅓ cup of brandy and bottle of Rowe Ridge Apple Pear Wine. The Apple Pear gives this drink a crisp, fruity finish that isn’t too sweet. Next add in soda water or Prosecco. Stirr in all ingredients together. 

Allow sangria to chill in the refrigerator for 3-4 hours. Add ice (optional), top with soda  water and garnish with fruit. 

This drink is best enjoyed outside in the sun. See here for a full video on how to make this recipe!
