Medjool Date Sangria Cocktail

Medjool Date Sangria Cocktail

Ingredients

  1. 1/4 cup Medjool date syrup (see recipe)
  2. 1/4 cup brandy
  3. 1 750 ml bottle Pinot Noir (or your favourite red wine)
  4. 2 cups Bing cherries, pitted
  5. 1 cup sliced strawberries
  6. 2 white flesh peaches, sliced thin
  7. 3 sprigs of fresh thyme (more for garnish)
  8. 4 small fresh basil leaves
  9. 1 cup cold club soda (if you like your Sangria a little sweeter, try using Diet 7-up)

Preparation

  1. In a large pitcher, combine the Medjool date syrup, brandy, wine, cherries, strawberries and sprigs of thyme. Let macerate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. 
  2. Remove the pitcher from the refrigerator, add the peaches, and gently stir.
  3. Layer 2 large wine glasses or glass tumblers with ice, and a spoonful of the fruit. Fill each glass with wine and a splash of club soda (or Diet 7-up), then garnish each glass with a piece of fresh thyme and a small basil leaf. Relax, enjoy and repeat!
