food friday...sangria margarita

This drink is a play on a sangria swirl, a margarita with sangria ice cubes. 
I used Alison and Taido's sangria recipe and placed them in ice trays to freeze. Probably best to do that over night for a firm cube.

Citrus Sangria
1 bottle medium bodied red wine (we used Shiraz)
2 cups sparkling water (we used Pellegrino)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons Triple Sec
Juice of one orange
Juice of one lemon
Juice of one lime
Mix all ingredients together and place in ice trays.

For the margarita the most important factor is for sure fresh squeezed juice. Since making these I have purchased this electric citrus juicer because it is a pretty serious undertaking with a hand juicer.


2 cup fresh squeezed citrus juice (I did 1 1/2 c lime and 1/2 c orange, but you could use some lemon too)
1 1/2 cup white tequila
1 1/2 cup triple sec
limes for garnish

Place margarita in cup and fill with sangria ice cubes. This recipe is perfect for a hot summer day, but works with fajitas and guacamole anytime.
