Margarita Sangria is also known as a Sangrita or Sangrita Tinta.
Be sure to make your Margarita Sangria at least 4 hours before serving it to allow the flavors to develop. Making Margarita Sangria the day before serving is my favorite way to ensure that the delicious flavor is at its best!
What type of fruit is best in this Margarita Sangria?
As with most sangria recipes, this Margarita Sangria recipe is very flexible and versatile. Feel free to substitute the fruit in this Sangrita for whatever you happen to have on hand. I like to use about 2 cups of fruit in my sangrias- but you can use more or less.
What type of wine do you use in a Red Margarita Sangria?
For this sangria, you can use just about any red wine. I always recommend that you use a type of wine that you typically enjoy drinking. I typically choose a merlot or a Spanish table wine.
The most important rule about which wine to use in a sangria, is not to use an expensive wine. Save your expensive wines for nice dinners, and use an inexpensive wine in your sangria. Since you’ll be adding several other ingredients to the wine.
How long can Sangria last in the refrigerator?
Sangria will last for up to 5 days if it is stored in the refrigerator.
How to make a Red Margarita Sangria
Choose a pitcher and gather your Margarita Sangria ingredients. You’ll need a bottle of red wine, a can of frozen limeade, tequila, triple sec, sugar, and fruit.
Slice the fruit and place it in the bottom of your pitcher.
Pour the sugar on top of the fruit, then lightly muddle the fruit and sugar together.
Add half a can of lime juice concentrate, tequila, and triple sec. Stir until everything is well mixed.
Pour a bottle of wine into the pitcher, stir and refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight.
To serve the Margarita Sangria fill a large wine glass with ice and fill the glass just over half full with the chilled sangria. Top the margarita sangria off with your favorite carbonated mixer. You can use sparkling water, ginger ale, club soda, or a lemon-lime soda.
