It’s been so hot in Santa Cruz this past week, my thoughts led me to what wine would be refreshing? Let’s make Sangria! As I am working hard on maintaining my figure I decided to put together a recipe with less guilt. I substituted the sugar for Agave Nectar. Me, and my friends, were amazed at how good and refreshing this drink was! We enjoyed it out on the back deck surrounded with friends and sunshine. Enjoy!
Santa Cruz Sangria – Low Sugar
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes
Wine Club Rogue Blend for the Santa Cruz Sangria
Combine all of the ingredients except for the sparkling water and raspberries. Refrigerate overnight. Add sparkling water, raspberries and ice just before serving. It’s best to chill the Sangria for 24 hours, but you can serve it right away if you chill the wine ahead of time and serve it with ice. Serve in wine glasses.
