The Best Mango Sangria

Looking for a refreshing and fruity wine cocktail? This one uses mango, rather than the more common orange or cranberry. It's great for spring or just a regular brunch anytime of year.

You can also add apples to add a different flavor profile. Mango pairs well with berries, citrus, melon, and tropical fruits. To add that an herby flavor, you can muddle fresh mint and just add it right before serving.

4 Cups Mango Juice
1 bottle, sweet white wine
2 Mangoes
1 Orange
1 Lemon
2 cups Ice
5
  1. Thinly slice the orange, lemons and remove the seeds
  2. Dice the mangoes.
  3. In a large pitcher, place mango juice, white wine, and fruit.
  4. Let it infuse for 25...
