Michelle’s Sangria Cocktail


Michelle Babka in Parkton Maryland’s Casa Mia Restaurant serves up an unusual firecracker Sangria. This version is more a cocktail than a wine over ice variety. And its fabulous!


  • Everyday Cabernet
  • Cranberry Juice
  • Triple Sec
  • Brandy (Peach Brandy if you like)
  • peach schnapps
  • simple syrup
  • Sprite and fruit of choice (bing cherries, halved, if you have)


In a container, fill 1/2 with cabernet. Add 1/3 of that amount of cranberry juice, then 3 parts triple sec, brandy and schnapps- add a dash of simple syrup (sugar water). Add fruit.

When ready to serve, fill either the container or a glass with ice and top with Sprite, garnish and serve! Its dark, sweet and spicy!
