We first had this amazing drink when mom and dad came to visit Barcelona. There is a fantastic bar near our house called La Luna (the moon for those of you who don’t habla the Español). There they serve all manner of amazing food and drink. We ordered champagne sangria out of sheer amazement and it turned out to be a crowd favorite. This is my best recollection of the recipe.
1-2 bottles of Champagne
1 orange (peel it if you like to eat the fruit later)
10-15 cut up strawberries
1 apple chopped up
1 shot vodka
1 shot rum
1 shot chambord
1 shot triple sec
2 shots orange juice
2 shots blueberry juice (this is optional and my own addition)
3-4 Tbsp of sugar (also optional)
Peel the fruits if you want to make them easier to eat while your drinking.
Chop up the fruits.
Put them in a jug or bowl.
Pour in the Champagne
Add the hard alcohol, other juices and sugar.
Serve and Enjoy! You can let it sit for up to a day in the refrigerator as well. This intensifies the flavor but the bubbles of the champagne are all gone. Hope this finds you summery and happy.
