My Sangria Recipe has very humble beginnings. When I was in my mid to late 20’s (in the voice of Hedwig the rockstar) I was one of the founding members of the Broke Down Bitch Club. In a nutshell, we were a bunch of broke ass gay men who loved to eat, drink and party as cheaply as possible.
Trust me when I tell you we knew every cheap drink special on every day of the week within 10 miles of our stomping grounds. I am still amazed that I didn’t die from the side effects of cheap alcohol!!
I liked to throw parties. (alot!) I didn’t have much money back then – I learned to make a dollar holla! One of the things I would make would be my world famous Ghetto Fabulous Sangria Recipe. My Sangria Recipe was cheap, easy, and everyone loved it!!
Flash forward about 13 years – I am married, have a house, still like to throw parties. Maybe I am not as cheap as I used to be, however, I am still into things that are tasty and easy to make. (The fact that it’s cheap is a bonus)
Don’t let the cheapness of the ingredients fool you. This Sangria Recipe is tasty, not too sweet, and refreshing. Trust me your friends will love it! I rarely make my Ghetto Fabulous Sangria Recipe in front of friends. I want an unbiased opinion when it is consumed – then I spill the beans on what is in it. By the end of the night everyone wants the recipe.
I like to bring my game on by serving it up all fancy looking. It’s a classic bait and switch. It’s all about the presentation baby! If it looks pretty people want to drink it.
If I am being all fancy I have this lovely little Sangria Serving Set.
