Irish Whiskey Sangria Recipe
Celebrate the luck of the Irish with this Whiskey-based Sangria! Many Irish I've met enjoyed making plum wine the 'natural way' when they were teenagers. They would gather up plums put them into a ceramic jug and bury that for a few months. Natural yeasts would do their work and when the jug was pulled up, voila! Cheap wine for singing and dancing!
This Sangria celebrates the fun of Ireland.
1 bottle (750ml) red wine - Rioja, or other substitute
1 bottle (2 liter) Sprite
4 cups Irish whiskey
4 plums, cut into small pieces
1 cup sugar
1 can (12 oz) lemonade concentrate
Prepare a large pitcher or bowl. Mix together the red wine, Sprite, Irish whiskey, plums, sugar, and lemonade.
Chill overnight if at all possible. This will let the flavors of the plum permeate the sangria.
To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.
The next day, pour over ice in a pitcher and serve!

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 :)
