Timber Lodge Sangria

Timber Lodge Sangria

Nothing beats a relaxing summer night in the Finger Lakes! We sure do love the beautiful sunsets and what better way to enjoy them than with a delicious cocktail?! For this cocktail we decided to try a summer classic; the refreshing and fruity sangria. We put our own spin on this classic by using our Timber Lodge Red wine and Alder Creek Distillery vodka. This wine is perfect as it is soft and sweet with aromas of strawberries and blueberries. Our vodka has hints of toasted almond and vanilla making a sweet and smooth blend. Mixed with fresh berries, nectarines, sugar and topped with ginger ale, this is a drink worth making!

Although we only made one glass, this drink is perfect for sharing! The following ingredients and instructions are for a pitcher. Share with friends and family or have the whole pitcher to yourself (because it’s just that good)!
