Ummmm yesterday I got a shipment of 10 lbs of cherries. OMG. Can you even deal! So epic... so this Stone Fruit and Strawberry Sangria is happening.
So the Stone Fruit and Strawberry Sangria was born. And it's making quite a few appearances on the dinner table this coming week. It literally cannot be easier. It just requires a few minutes to pit the cherries and then another second or two to combine the sugar and the brandy. And then it's ready to drink!! Well.... almost ready to drink! It's got to sit in the fridge for a few hours so the fruit can really infuse the wine and make the Stone Fruit and Strawberry Sangria picture perfect.
So here's to cherry and strawberry season! Snag some either online or next time you see them in the wild. Use some for this sangria, obviously, and then just eat the rest right out of the bag. They will literally rock your world.
Also. Full disclaimer. This is basically the best sangria I've ever created. Hands down. Best stuff on earth. So while I'm sure you could probably drink the whole thing yourself, it's best served for at least 2 people. Probably three 🙂
