Happy Pride! Or as we like to call it, Gay Sangria Season. Are you hosting a Pride brunch or a pre-game this weekend? Why not get into the full spirit of Pride with this colorful, fruity, boozy, wine-based punch that will have all your friends saying, “gay rights!”
This colorful concoction is an extra-festive, super-gay take on white wine sangria. There’s a fruit for (almost) every color of the rainbow. Plus, enough liquor to make you start seeing unicorns, so watch out. If the Gay Sangria is a little too sweet or too strong for some of your friends, give ‘em a can of sparkling water to top it off.
Here’s how it’s done.
Gay Sangria Ingredients
Two lemons (or peaches)
A thing of raspberries (or strawberries)
A thing of blueberries
Magnum bottle of your favorite Sauvignon Blanc (1.5 liters)
St. Germain (the *secret* ingredient)
Lime-flavored sparkling water (or champagne)
Gay Sangria Directions
Step 1. Slice the oranges, lemons and limes into thin slices, crosswise. Dump the chubby ends in the trash.
Step 2. Slice the peaches and strawberries until they look super cute.
Step 3. Put all the fruit in a clear glass pitcher, and take a moment to admire all the pretty colors.
Step 4. Pour the whole thing of Sauvignon Blanc. Just do it!
Step 5. Add two shots of gin, plus an extra shot for each of your ex-boyfriends you expect to run into this weekend.
Step 6. Add St. Germain until it tastes yummy, or until you start getting tipsy.
Step 7. Top it all off with a splash of lemonade for an extra boost of Vitamin C.
Step 8. Put the pitcher in the fridge and go get ready! People are going to get here soon! And by soon, we mean two to three hours.
Step 9. Serve it up in white wine glasses over ice. As you serve, be thankful of all the rights you now enjoy and get fired up to fight for more.
Step 10. Top each glass with the sparkling water for a sparkly summertime feel, or champagne if you wanna get extra cray.
