Blood oranges are so “in” right now. They are showing up in everything from scones to cookies to cocktails. To celebrate this stunning fruit, we’ve made a delicious frozen sangria, which is perfect for your spring and Easter brunch!
Sangria is one of the most popular spring and summertime drinks. To make it even cooler (get it?) we added some ice, blended it and served it up like a margarita! The sweetness of the blood orange is the perfect complement to the dryness of the white wine. Add some pretty fruit garnishes for a drink that’s as gorgeous as it is refreshing!
