This raspberry mango sangria is the perfect addition to your Easter table. Slightly sweet and packed with fresh raspberries, mango, and mint. Easy to make and even easier to drink!
If there is one thing I love about the holidays it’s the excuse to make up a giant pitches of sangria. Now I’m not really sure if I should be talking about pitches of booze for Easter but I’m going to go with it. I think any holiday that requires large dinners with family also requires sangria. Luckily this one is also great for spring. It’s light, super fruity and goes down like juice. Which I guess could make it a little dangerous BUT it’s ok. Just don’t be crazy and drink the whole pitcher.
Tipsy is ok. Drunk is not.
And because this sangria is packed full of fruit it’s perfectly sweet. I used fresh mango, raspberries and just a touch of mint. I opted to add just a touch of zero-calorie Truvia spoonable to the sangria to give it just a touch of extra sweetness. I like to use a little because Truvia is a bit sweeter than normal sugar but you can add as much as desired. I suggest starting off with a little and adding more after tasting.
But just remember, you don’t want anyone getting a cavity over sangria so don’t go crazy.
Now if you’re a sangria virgin you have to know this – EAT THE FRUIT. It’s the best part! It soaks up the wine and peach schnapps and should not be thrown away. Actually there is a pretty funny store about thrown away sangria fruit. One Christmas I made HUGE batch of sangria and even after all our drinking and munching we had a lot of leftover fruit. So my dad threw it outside but then it snowed and covered the fruit. After a few weeks the snow melted and the squirrels found the fruit. My dad looked outside to find a few squirrels trying to climb the trees and falling off. Basically the fruit fermented and the squirrels got loaded. Could you imagine being that squirrel? “I was just trying to eat some fruit and then I got bombed.” Poor squirrel.
