Small Batch Citrus Sangria

Today I am going to take the idea of citrus sangria like the kind I served at my birthday party, refine it and create something a little more unique. I wanted to craft something with a fresh taste, natural ingredients and a citrus zing. I’ve set out to make for all of you smaller batch sangria that can easily be made for a variety of occasions. This is when I came up with the idea to create one base recipe that could be adapted to many different types of citrus fruits.

 

Citrus Sangria

First you can decide which type of sangria you’d like to make, or you can be like me and make all three. That is why each recipe is virtually the same except for the fruit and juice that is used. To help everyone out I have included the approximate number of citrus fruits it took to make the amount of juice used.

Citrus Sangria Ingredients

 

You are all more than welcome to double recipe and make a double batch of your favorite, or maybe combine all three into a GIANT CITRUS SANGRIA ::Insert evil villain laugh:: Well in whatever case, whichever one you choose I’m sure that you will enjoy.
