Mix like a Pro!
Pairs With: Red Wine
Flavor Profile: Ancho Chile + Dark Cherry + Black Pepper
Let's get this out of the way off the top, this cocktail is an absolute banger! Think of that favourite song that is locked on repeat, over and over, filling you with energy each time it plays. This cocktail is like that. Big energy.
My goal was to create a winter sangria that was fresh in the typical sangria fashion, but somehow still warms the soul while the temperatures outside drop. I recently fell in love with an Ancho chile liqueur which formed the inspiration for this mix.
Ancho chile and black pepper bring a slight heat to the sangria, a perfect warming element for those cold winter nights. Sweet dark cherries are the star of the show, perfectly complementing the dried fruit notes typically found in red wines. This cocktail strikes a beautiful balance between staying surprisingly light but also deep and complex at the same time.
I'm really proud of this mix and hope it brings you as much joy as that favourite jam on repeat.
Instructions: Combine wine and cocktail mix in a mixing pitcher filled with ice. Stir until well chilled and diluted. Strain into a double rocks glass over a large block of ice. Garnish with an orange twist.
