This drink is pure perfection. It is frozen margarita and sangria. I've spent many years working on researching this. (Ie. drinking swirls in restaurants whenever I can.)
One of the reasons I love this combination is that the red wine cuts the sweetness and tartness of the margarita. It just works.
In most places when you order a swirl it comes out of a machine and the sangria has the same frozen slushy consistency as the frozen margarita. I've discovered you really don't need for the sangria to be frozen in order to make the perfect swirl.
Here are the ingredients:
Tequila of your choice
Frozen limeaid concentrate
In a blender add the entire can of the frozen limeaid concentrate.
Then fill the can with tequila and add to blender.
Fill the can halfway with Grand Marnier and then top off can with triple sec.
Then add ice to blender and mix away!
The rest is easy! Just add sangria to the bottom of your glass. Then pour in your frozen margarita.
I just want to tell you that I firmly believe the liquor you choose will make 100% of the difference in the outcome.
I am a tequila snob but when it comes to frozen margaritas expensive does not mean better. Cuervo Gold is my choice for frozen margaritas. I also believe this sangria is the best. Cruz Garcia imported from Spain is the best in my book.
This sangria packs a punch but doesn't taste as if its loaded with liquor. You'll have to try this! I wouldn't lead you astray!!!
Life is good!!!
Life on the lake is laid back. When we cook it's far from being fancy affair. It's all about relaxing with friends and family and enjoying comfort food. More often than not it's not all that healthy but boy it sure is good!!!
