One day a couple weeks ago this recipe caught my eye (because of the "mango" in the title), but when I read the ingredients I passed it up because I have never liked the taste of merlot. My family flew in last week for my DD's 3rd birthday but my mom sent a grocery gift card ahead & requested I add a bottle of merlot to the list. At this point I remembered that I had seen a drink I wanted to try but was afraid to buy the merlot. This was a win-win now! Mom was game for trying the drink as well. I had to get creative with the juices, as there were no plain mango or cran-mango available. We ended up with two frozen concentrates: one orange-mango juice & one cranberry-pomegranate juice. We used 3 Tablespoons of concentrate & 1/2 cup water for each called for amount of juice. We really enjoyed it. The color was also really pretty. Served over ice with the citrus garnish made for a nice presentation as well. Thanks for sharing, Jane! You've made me not afraid to buy merlot anymore! :) *Tink
My husband and I love sangria. This recipe gave me an excuse to try Ocean Spray's Cran-Mango juice. I used a cheap Spanish rioja. I served this in over-sized wine glasses over ice with sliced oranges for garnish. Looked nice and tasted great. Thanks for sharing this one.
I love sangria and I am always looking for new recipes. This one is definitely a keeper! DH and I loved it and it was perfect in this 100 degree weather. Thanks for posting, JaneRI!
