9+ Best Sangria Recipes, including this Refreshing Sangria Moscato with RumPRINT PIN RATE
- 1 large grapefruit
- 1 large green apple
- 1 large lime
- ⅓ cup dark rum
- 750 mL Moscato (750 mL = about 3 cups)
- 1 cup sparkling water
- 2 cups ice
- ¼ cup simple syrup (optional)
- Wash and cut your grapefruit, apple, and lime into 4 pieces. Add your fruit to a large pitcher.
- Add the rum (and if you would like added sweetness, the simple syrup) and use a large wooden spoon to stir, pressing down on the citrus to muddle it and extract the juices.
- Add your Moscato, sparkling water, and ice. Stir with your spoon and serve cold.
- Moscato is naturally really sweet, so this recipe does not call for any extra sugar. If you love your sangria super sweet, you can always add 1/4 cup of simple syrup.
- I love how the dark rum mellows out the sweetness of the Moscato, but you can absolutely use light rum if you prefer.
