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

Ingredients

• 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

Method

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.
