Halloween calls for all things dark and spooky, and this very dark sangria is perfect for your Halloween celebrations.
Tip: The longer you refrigerate the Sangria, the deeper the color of the plums – you can see the deep red of the plum that was used as a garnish on the glass.
What you need:
- 1 bottle Ménage à Trois Midnight (or alternatively Apothic Dark Red Blend)
- 1/4 cup Cointreau orange liqueur
- 1 lime (squeezed)
- 1 cup blackberries
- 1 cup black plums (in slices)
- 1/2 cup black corinth grapes (or alternatively, regular black or red grapes)
- 1 pkt Sweet'N Low
- Ice cubes – I used a skull ice cube tray
Leave the ice in the freezer and combine all of the other ingredients in a large glass pitcher. Stir, and then refrigerate for a minimum of two hours.
Right before serving, add the skull ice cubes – or whatever Halloween themed ice cubes (bones would look cool too) you desire to your glass pitcher.
If you don't enjoy the strong taste of the darker wine, add a glass of seltzer to the glass pitcher before refrigerating.
Tip: I found the fun green swizzle sticks at Walmart. Wash them thoroughly before use. The hand makes a great spoon for enjoying the fruit left in your glass.
Did you know Sweet'N Low is low calorie and diabetic friendly?
