Housewarming Sangria

For our housewarming party I made a triple batch of this St. Germain based Sangria - it was to die for! Super yummy yet ridiculously potent.

Sangria Flora


One 750-milliliter bottle Sauvignon Blanc
1 1/2 cups St-Germain (elderflower liqueur)
1/4 cup Cointreau (orange liqueur)
6 strawberries, sliced 1/4 inch thick
6 raspberries
2 peaches, sliced 1/4 inch thick
1 orange, thinly sliced crosswise
1 pound green and red grapes


Combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher and let stand at room temperature for 3 hours, or cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve in wineglasses over ice.

I bought an inexpensive glass jar from Target for serving. Add some chalkboard paint and you're good to go!

We were pretty well stocked for the party but ran out of the sangria FAST (did I mention that it was a TRIPLE batch). Pro-Tip: When all you have left is booze soaked fruit -- just throw in whatever wine, liquor, etc that you have laying around.... It will still be delicious.
