Last weekend was my birthday and I was incredibly touched by all the thoughtful gifts that I received, to others some of them might sound a bit mad – but they showed just how well the person that gifted it really knows me! (Like my beautiful Juniper Fox painting or the instant cheddar grits I was given, because shrimp and grits is my Sunday brunch obsession!)
One of my presents was a gorgeous clutch of mangoes, fresh off the tree (two different types!) and you know what they say – when life gives you mangoes, you make mango raspberry sangria!
(Wait, that is what they say… right?)
I’ve been patiently waiting for them to ripen – and now they’re ready, so I made a birthday batch! It’s super simple and really delicious – you should give it a go…
Mango, Raspberry Sangria
1 punnet of raspberries
1 cup Triple Sec
1 bottle of rose
club soda or prosecco to top up
lemon slices to garnish
:: Cut your mango into cubes – it’s a messy job – if anyone has found a mess free method, please share
:: Combine chopped mango, raspberries, triple sec and rose wine in a large jug. Chill for 2+ hours.
:: Pour over ice, garnish with lemon slices and top up with either prosecco or club soda.
I have a good “mango cubing” method. Not exactly mess-free, but low mess for sure 🙂 x
Please tell me!! 🙂 x
I bet it was delicious!!
Thank you Alexandria! It was!! Just watch out that the boozy fruit doesn’t catch you unawares… 🙂
This looks so good! Love Sangria, it’s perfect for summer!
It was such a good summery treat!! 🙂
Happy belated birthday!! That Sangria looks delicious!
Ahhh – thank you!! 🙂
Mango is my favorite fruit so this recipe sounds super yummy! What a great summertime treat!
It’s so good Marcie and super easy! 🙂
That is what they say now. What a great summer drink! Now I need mangoes!
Yum! Reminds me of a holiday I took in Portugal a couple of years ago – I’d never thought of using white wine or rose until then. Looks delish! x
Two of my favourite fruits combined into 1! You’re definitely talking my language.
