Grand Prix Sangria

If you are going to throw a Spanish themed party, Sangria is a must have!   We love this cocktail choice because it’s a crowd pleaser, looks beautiful and you can make it ahead of time!  Also, this is one of those cocktails you can use some creativity with.  Follow our delicious recipe, or change it up!  You can throw in your favorite berries, tropical fruit, etc.  Sit back relax and enjoy a taste of Spain!


Spanish red wine, Leopold’s maraschino liqueur, black cherry juice, fresh fruit and spices! As if wine doesn’t get any better!

DSC_0445Layering the fruit is a beautiful way to present the sangria, but stir it before you serve it.


We think star anise not only makes everything look beautiful, but also give it a nice burst of flavor.


Let sit for a couple hours or over night.  Stir and serve over ice.  Garnish with a fresh strawberry and star anise.
