The spicy flavors of fall come bursting through in this yummy Punt e Mes Sangria. You know that we love a good sangria at The Blind Pig Blog, and our newest recipe is definitely moving to the top of the pack. It is easy, delicious and just the right beverage to serve as you are roasting marshmallows or savoring our Bourbon Pumpkin Dump Cake. Our weather in Texas has been so beautiful lately that we have enjoyed sitting on the back deck, sipping on this delicious sangria.
This recipe is based on our Carpano Antica Sangria which we first shared with you back in July of 2017. The main difference in the two is that we used Punt e Mes instead of Carpano Antica for the vermouth. Both recipes make excellent sangrias, but the Punt e Mes brings out rich, harvest flavors to savor.
The ingredients that you will need to make Punt e Mes Sangria are: 1 bottle of red wine, grenadine, diet cranberry juice cocktail, simple syrup, Punt e Mes, and fresh fruits of your choice. We used apples, pears and plums. Not fans of sweet drinks, we used a cabernet and diet cranberry juice to cut down on the sweetness. If you like a sweeter sangria then you may want to use a merlot or other red wine.
Mix everything together and place in the refrigerator for 2 hours prior to serving. Serve chilled over ice, making sure to add some fruit into the glass for garnish.
