This month we’re going all in on a batch sangria recipe to bring together friends and family. “Luminary” is a glittering celebration of the season and an opportunity to connect and unwind.
Luminary combines the lively flavors of Woodstove Kitchen Glitter Sangria mix, robust cherry aromas of FRE alcohol-removed wine, and comforting hints of honey and vanilla from Sarilla Vanilla Rooibos sparkling tea.
Customize your sangria – like it sweeter? Add more sangria mix. More tart? Add fresh lemon juice. Optional add-ins such as fresh cranberries and cinnamon sticks allow you to make this drink your own!
Jam while you mix!
Let's get organized.
Here's what you'll need (in addition to what's in your box) to make this month's drinks.
- Optional: fresh lemon juice, fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks, and/or additional garnishes
Tools & Glassware
- Punchbowl or large pitcher
- Mixing glass or shaker
- Martini glass
Please note, the above are optional!
Don't have a shaker? Mix it up in a drinking glass with a spoon! Don't have a jigger? Use a shot glass or tablespoon measure. No fresh juice? These are just suggestions on how to get the most variation out of your box, but you can get creative on your own and experiment!
Ready. Set. Mix!
For The Party:
- 1 bottle FRE wine
- 1 cup Woodstove Kitchen glitter sangria mix
- 2 cans Sarilla Vanilla Rooibos
- Dardiman’s blood orange and mandarin slices
Pre-chill the ingredients, and stir them together in a punch bowl or a large pitcher along with the dried fruit slices. Make sure to shake the sangria mixer to get the best glitter effect! If you prefer a sweeter sangria, increase the amount of sangria mix. For a tangier taste, incorporate some lemon juice. You can enhance the drink with fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks, and/or additional garnishes if desired.
Just For You:
- 1 packet Craftmix espresso martini
- 2 oz. water
- 2 oz. NA spirit (we recommend rum, whiskey
or vodka alternatives – sub with additional
2 oz. water if preferred)
- 3 espresso beans
In a shaker with ice, combine the first three ingredients and shake vigorously until the shaker tin is frosted. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with espresso beans.
