Cinco de Mayo Cocktail: Raspberry Moscato Sangria

With Cinco de Mayo approaching, we figured we would share a unique drink recipe. We’re almost certain that a vast majority of you will be enjoying a nice Corona (or 5) with a shot of Tequila (or 5), but that’s not to say you can’t spice up your festivities with some Sangria! Traditionally, Sangria consists of red wine with chopped fruit, which can then be combined with orange juice, brandy, or whatever else you choose. Our recipe calls for Pink Moscato, which is a sweet substitute to the red stuff and pairs very well with raspberry.

What you’ll need:

SANGRIA
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) chilled Pink Moscato (any brand will do, but we recommend Sutter Home or Gallo)
  • 1/2 cup raspberry or red berry Vodka
  • 1 raspberry simple syrup recipe
  • 1 cup strawberries (halved)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda
RASPBERRY SYRUP
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar

Directions:

SANGRIA

  • Grab a large pitcher and add fruit to bottom. Pour in Moscato, Vodka, and raspberry simple syrup. Stir well. Put pitcher in the refrigerator, let chill for at least an hour. Mix in lemon-lime soda before serving.

RASPBERRY SYRUP

  • Add raspberries, water, and sugar in a small pot. Bring to a gentle boil. Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Remove mixture from heat and allow to come to room temperature. Strain the mixture. Store in refrigerator if you are waiting to use. You can whip this mixture up a few days in advance for convenience.
