Tart and undeniably delicious, this Citrus Sangria is made with craft IPA and is absolutely delicious. Switch up your traditional Sangria for this one – it’ll for certain be a huge hit!
Coming up with beer cocktails like it’s my job! With cheap growler fills, I’m finding it’s a fun way to enjoy cocktails on a Sunday afternoon. I’ll go for a long run in the morning, start cooking something fabulous, take my pup for a walk, and sip on something like this right before dinner. Date night is what you make it, no?
I always seem to have an abundance of citrus. It’s in season and it’s calling my name! Dousing any cocktail with a few big squeezes of some citrus fruit is never a bad thing. Truly!
I’m a hoppy beer girl for the most part, but what I love about this cocktail is how the strong IPA flavour becomes tamed, but stays present, while allowing the citrus notes to really brighten the overall flavour. Definitely a drink I’ll be adding into my cocktail rotation!
Hope you enjoy! xx
