GRAPEFRUIT-MINT SANGRIA

INGREDIENTS: 

  • 1 bottle Riesling wine,  750ml
  • 12 – 15 mint leaves + extra for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup *recipe below
  • 2 ripe grapefruits
  • 2 ripe oranges
  • 2 limes
  • Club soda
Simple syrup: 1/2 cup sugar + 1/2 cup water

DIRECTIONS:

To prepare the simple syrup, add the water and sugar to a small pot, bring to a full boil, stir well, and remove from the heat. Let this cool while you work on the fruit.

To prepare the fruit, cut in into chunks or slices that will easily fit the carafe or pitcher you’re using. You want to be sure you can easily get it out when pouring the cocktail into your glasses.
