Tiki drinks are making a big comeback, but gone are the sugary syrups-this time it's all about fresh flavors and unexpected hints of spice. The balance of tart pineapple, sweet Grenache, and slight hint of nutmeg will transport you to an island paradise in no time.
Combine the wine, fresh lemon juice, nutmeg and half of your pineapple juice in a quart freezer bag and zip close.
Squeeze bag gently for a few seconds to thoroughly combine contents, and then lay flat inside of freezer overnight (or 8 hours) until frozen.
Once frozen remove bag from freezer, and use your hands to break up the contents inside the bag until they resemble a slush.
Use a large spoon to scoop out the mixture into red wine glasses, fill 3/4 of the way with your wine mixture.
Next, combine remaining pineapple juice, vodka, and the frozen fruit chunks in a cocktail shaker and shake to mix.
Pour the juice, fruit and vodka mixture over the frozen wine into your glasses.
Garnish with additional frozen fruit and serve with a straw.
Orange and Black Sangri-Ahhh!
The base of this drink couldn't be easier to make. Orange soda and white wine are a tasty combination to mix with any fruity vodka. The real magic happens in the presentation leaving the cool orange and black layered effect.
This is an easy-to-make sangria that combines late summer flavors for a very drinkable concoction that's perfect to share with friends. We've tried it with both pear juice and pear nectar, we prefer nectar for the more fresh flavor and less sugar.
