Mango Lime Sangria

By , July 6, 2020

This past 4th of July weekend, I concocted a beverage that may be the best sangria I’ve ever made. That’s saying a lot, especially since this is made with white wine and I typically prefer to drink a flavorful red.

The inspiration came from the fresh mangoes and excessive amount of limes that we had on stock in our fridge. The resulting beverage is light and refreshing — and tastes deceptively like fruit juice.

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle of pinot grigio (750ml)
  • 1 cup mango juice
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice (or about four limes)
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Note: For this recipe, I used fresh squeezed lime juice, and I purchased the mango juice and lemon juice in the bottle. I don’t have a juicer so fresh mango juice would’ve been a huge amount of manual labor. If you have the proper equipment, I recommend using fresh, homemade juice. But if you don’t, this recipe is still delicious with juice bought from the store.

Directions

  1. Mix mango juice, lemon juice, lime juice, wine, and sugar in a pitcher. Stir well. I found that pouring the mixture from one pitcher to another a few times does a great job of stirring the mixture/dissolving the sugar.
  2. Garnish with fresh lime and enjoy!
