The Herb Box Sangria

Since there's really no better accessory than a cocktail in your hand, each week brings you a tasty adult beverage from one of our favorite drinking establishments, complete with recipe. This week: The Herb Box Sangria at The Herb Box

After a long day of shopping or people watching at Scottsdale Fashion Square, it's nice to have a cocktail nearby. Thankfully, the Southbridge location of The Herb Box (literally walking distance from Nordstrom) is there to help.

One of the most popular mixtures from their 'drinx' menu, is The Herb Box Sangria. Red wine gets just the right exotic flare with the help of peach schnapps, apricot brandy and really just the whole fruit of the loom gang. But just like fancy jungle juice it will by you have you drunk before you can say "Sheck Peas." Oh well, looks like you'll just have to shop yourself sober, darn.

Recipe after the jump...

Ingredients:

5 oz. house red wine (stick to something lighter bodied) .5 oz peach schnapps .5 apricot brandy .5 fresh squeezed orange juice Dash of cinnamon Splash of 7 Up

Method:

Take the ingredients above and multiply their quantity at least 4 times. Mix the ingredients in a pitcher with ice. Pour generously and often.
