Cherry Sage Sangria

Cherry Sage Sangria

Author note: Sangria taste best when allowed to marinate over night. Don’t expect delicious flavor an hour or two after mixing. Also, don’t splurge on wine for this mix, a moderate to cheap bottle of wine works fine. I like to double this recipe, because it tends to go fast.

1 ½ cups cherries, pitted and halved

1 bottle of dry red wine (pinot noir or a nice red blend)

½ cup bourbon

2 tablespoons orange liqueor

½ cup sage simple syrup (click here for recipe)

  1. Place the cherries into a large pitcher. Pour the remaining ingredients over the cherries. Stir well.
  2. Let the sangria marinate over night (or at least 6 hours) in the fridge.
  3. Serve over ice and with a sage leaf.
