How To Make An Easy Orange Raspberry Sangria Margarita
You’ll find nothing but easy instructions here, like, open, slice, pour, etc. so don’t worry mixologist, you got this!
Of course, I do suggest taste-testing along the way as that is half the fun of creating cocktails don’t you agree?
Step 1 Is Just Like Making A Pitcher Of Margaritas But Better
As long as you can shake whatever you are putting in your vessel that will hold the cocktail mixture, you can use it, if not you’ll want to work in a container that you can shake, after all the key to great margaritas is the shake.
Also, I worked inside my skull vessel and could shake with ease, so I began by adding the wine.
You’ll want to make sure you have your limes ready to squeeze, and your contents measured out ahead of the prep, so your first step is all about the prep.
Have a measuring cup or 2, and all of the ingredients set up, so you can just pour, squeeze then shake.
Step 2: Making The Sangria & The Margarita
Start by adding the white wine.
Then you will add in the orange flavored fruit beverage.
Add in the tequila as well as the orange liqueur.
Next, add the raspberry simple syrup and squeeze in the limes.
Shake to combine.
At this point, you will want to mix by shaking.
Step 3: Cool & Chill The Sangria Tequila Cocktail Mixture
Once you have mixed and shaken the mixture, you will add in the sliced fruit that you choose such as peaches, mango, and the lime that you squeezed.
Make sure that the lid is on the top and closed and place the cocktail vessel in the refrigerator, allowing the easy sangria margarita mixture to blend for at least 24 hours before serving.
What to Pair With Orange raspberry sangria margaritas
Of course, nothing is better than enjoying cocktails with a side, an appetizer, or a dessert, so here is some insight as to what sides, entrees, and desserts you could serve!
After all, if you just suck these down without some food, you might miss a step, a seat or anything else you attempt to do, as these Bichachos are strong!
This cocktail is great when you’re eating a spicy nut mixture, tortilla chips, wonton chips, buffalo chicken dip, or eating any type of appetizer. It is cool and refreshing.
Pair this up with any whitefish or spicy shrimp dish the cocktail is a perfect match!
Popular Subsitutuions & Additions
- use orange simple syrup if you prefer to not use raspberry making this a fully orange drink.
- if you prefer a more plain simple syrup use the 1:1 ratio of water to sugar, and simply add in a puree of fruit such as a mango purée or a raspberry purée added to the simple syrup would also create the same flavoring.
- do you know that if you use a purée it will separate when it sits so shaking is essential
- consider flavoring the ice, with either orange or raspberry so that there is a more concentrated flavor and color as the ice melts
How To Store Orange Raspberry Sangria Margarita Cocktails
Once you make a pitcher of these you will want to store it properly so you can use it on demand and I’ll share a few tips right now to help you with that!
Best Way To Store Margarita Sangria Orange Raspberry Cocktails
Once you make the sangria tequila mixture you will definitely want to refrigerate it with the fruit in it.
Since the fruit will be soaked in alcohol, it will not mold, but do know that within 3-4 days the fruit will look a bit dastardly and you may not want to consume it.
I suggest removing the fruit when there are leftovers and bottling the sangria tightly into an airtight jar you could then keep the sangria margarita cocktails for up to 6 days if you used white wine instead of red.
Once you remove the fruit you will need to use it within 3-4 days as a dressing over a dessert (cake, cupcake, cheesecake) or in a complimenting muddled drink you might be making.
Can I Freeze My Margarita Sangria Orange Raspberry Cocktails?
You can freeze the cocktails but do not expect them to freeze to rock hard consistency as tequila and triple sec don’t truly freeze.
In the end, you’ll end up with a slushy consistency however if you were just looking to preserve them a bit longer than 5 days you can do this for about 2 weeks and then use them, and don’t add ice.
The taste will not be as strong but it will also not be bad!
Margarita Sangria Orange Raspberry Cocktail FAQs
Can I use pineapple as my alcohol-soaked fruit?
Yes! in fact, pineapple is a wonderful choice for soft fruit in any sangria margarita and it is especially delicious in this particular drink as it plays well with the orange flavoring.
Can I use a bottle of red wine to make this sangria margarita?
Yes! you can change the wine, it may make the taste a bit bolder, but do you make sure to keep it as a fruity wine one that is not a Chianti or a Merlot
Can I Make A Flavor Other Than An Orange Margarita?
Yes! You can change up the flavors of the suggested orange flavored fruit beverage in lieu of a different flavor, just consider the raspberry flavor as well! In other words, if you change one you might have to change the other.
Do I Have To Use Fresh Squeezed Lime Juice to Make The Orange Rasberry Sangria Margarita?
Yes. I never use bottled lime, as it is not fresh and fresh lime is irreplaceable when it comes to the flavorful citrus burst it provides. If you use a bottled version of lime or frozen lime concentrate the flavor will not be as brilliant, so while you can, I just don’t.
