Cucumber Orange Sangria Recipe
This sangria is like a relaxing spa visit with fresh, relaxing, aromas around you which somehow envigorate you at the same time. Cucumber liqueur might be hard to find - but it's well worth it!
1 shot Cucumber liqueur
1 shot Triple Sec
Pour the shot of Cucumber Liqueur and shot of Triple Sec into a wine glass. If you want a lighter flavor, you can use just a half shot of each one. Pour in the red wine to fill. Here I'm doing it with a Georgian wine - Khvanchkara - but you can use any type you enjoy. For tradition, you can of course go with a Spanish Rioja!
Add in the frozen raspberries to add a chill without diluting the flavors. Give a little swirl, and enjoy!
If you don't have Triple Sec, other orange flavored liqueurs include Grand Marnier and Cointreau.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
