Raspberry Tequila Sangria

Sunday, February 14, 2010

As we all pine for the sweet springtime, I thought it was only appropriate to share a great cocktail for warmer weather! I was at a party Friday night and someone brought this fantastic sangria that I thought was perfect for posting...
Raspberry Tequila Sangria
Ingredients:

2 oranges
3 limes
1/4 cup sugar
6 cups ice
1 (10 ounce) bag frozen sweetened raspberries
1 cup silver tequila
1/2 cup triple sec
1 bottle of champagne
4 cups chilled lemon lime soda

Directions:

1. Juice one orange and two limes to measure 1/4 cup juice each. Combine juices and sugar in a microwavable bowl. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes or until sugar is dissolved. Thinly slice remaining orange and lime.
2. Add ice, juice mixture, orange and lime slices, raspberries, tequila and triple sec in a pitcher and stir. Add champagne and soda, stir gently and serve!
Yield: 12 servings

This is even a great treat if you're snowed-in and wanting to warm up a little! Enjoy!

  1. I love this recipe, but it says in the instructions to add champagne and there is no champagne in the ingredients list? I was just curious if it is a specific champagne and what measurement? Thanks!!!!

  2. Thank you so much for pointing that out!! I've updated the problem -- the recipe calls for 1 bottle of champagne (whichever kind you prefer). Enjoy!

  4. Triple Sec is an orange-flavoured liqueur. You can get it at any liquor store.

  8. Have you ever made this with a white wine instead of the champagne? I think it would still be delicious.

    1. You may want to cut back on the sugar, then. All the sugar + tequila = headache!

    1. Never use cheap tequila in anything, it will destroy the taste of the drink. I don't really care for tequila but have tried the cheap stuff in a recipe that made a pitcher. I just wasted my money!

  25. We made this before with pinot grigio or (even better) moscato! It's even better if u omit the ice cubes and make night before or at least a few hours ahead. Can use ANY fresh fruits, we used cantaloupe, raspberries, blueberries, kiwi, strawberries and seedless grapes (or any combination of them). It is delicious! !
