Manischewitz Sangria

Summer to me is all about friends, BBQs, and general frolicking/merriment. And of course, super fun games. But for some other people (who shall remain nameless), nothing cools you off quite like a chilly beverage or twelve two on a toasty Texas July day. Now this sangria recipe is for my 21+ readers (I barely qualify) so don’t even think about breaking into that Bar Mitzvah stash of Manischewitz. I made it last month for our Post Rapture Brunch to celebrate the world not ending (yay!), and it was a hit! All that was left were a few measly pieces of fruit. The best part is how flexible this recipe is- you can pretty much make it with any booze and fruit you have on hand. And you all keep Manschewitz stocked, right? Thought so.

Here is all you need for your very own Manischewitz sangria concoction. Again, feel free to use whatever booze and fruit you have on hand. Get creative, people!

I went with vodka, and garnished my sangria with plenty of peaches and apples. Grapes, oranges or cherries would be pretty darn tasty too.

First, chop up your fruit into small bite sized pieces. Then, add Manischewitz, lemon-lime soda and liqueur to taste.

What could be easier? If you said nothing, you are correct my friend. You will be imbibing in no time at all. Manischewitz Sangria is best made the day before serving, so the sweet kosher goodness can marinate. But after a glass of this stuff, you will hardly notice the difference.

    My dearest granddaughter. I must give you a lesson in the meeting of the Passover Seder, when we drink more Manishewicz than any other holiday. It is all about order and precision. First you cut the apples, then the oranges, the peaches, the nectarines, grapes, plums and cherries (leave out the pits), then you drink like crazy!!!!!!! Mazel

    This recipe is amazing! I have made it several times following your instructions! I use blackberry Manischewitz, vodka, and Sprite. I use an apple, orange, plum, peach, and nectarine. So good! Thanks for the recipe!
