June 9th, 2012 | Things that remind me of summer: Tea Sangria

One of my favourite parts about summer is a glass (or a pitcher ;D) of ice cold sangria on the patio. Last Sunday Beth & Di came over for some yummies and girlie movies. We made a red sangria using Cupcake Vineyard’s Red Merlot, DavidsTea’s pink flamingo, fresh fruit and orange rum.  Yum yum yum!

Incase you’re curious, here’s the recipe for how I made it:

Tea Infused Sangria


• 5-8 tsp tea (I used Pink Flamingo from Davids) steeped in 2c water
• 1 bottle red wine
• loads of fresh fruit & ice cubes
• 1/2 c orange rum or tripple sec
• 1/3c club soda to add some fizz


1. Steep your tea, combine, stir and enjoy!

Tea infused sangria just might be my new favourite thing! It adds some really interesting flavour. I think I’m going to try to make a white wine sangria with swampwater from DavidsTea next, or just some with a traditional orange pekoe.
