FA Blood orange and Cap Sweet Tangerine are the stars here! They both pack quite a realistic orange flavor so the Blood orange is the tart and the Sweet Tangerine is the high sweet note. Cap Juicy orange just to fill out that odd mid flavor and add some wetness.
TFA Dragonfruit to help the oranges blend. I don't even taste it, but it's just a meshing flavor.
Soda Base to give it that "soda can" texture and some sweetness, .5% Fizz Pop for a soda fizz. No coolant as I drink my soda warm, feel free to add WS-23 or koolada to your own preference.
SNV, best after a day or two steep.
Sweetener to taste. Old school Fanta is way different than the stuff we get nowadays with real orange juice in it which is why I used a lot of proper orange flavoring instead of more imitations. To me Fanta is the best orange soda on the market today, I love it!
One year while working lakeside at a really epic tattoo studio, I made my second home at this really stellar Mexican restaurant. Aside from their mexi-dip that would have me getting outta bed for midnight cravings, they served this in-house made Sangria that led to me sleeping in their booths more than once. You'd get these massive jugs for 20$, they'd put citrus slices & cherries In there that would sink to the bottom & be the most delish booze soaked treat to fish out the bottom after you polished off a jug. This sangria was so fresh & fruity that you barely tasted the alcohol, so couple that with the price, ergo; booth bed!
This place has since closed the franchise taking their recipes to the grave :'(
I was attempting to make a sweet & slightly boozy sangria without the chill factor because the way I was taught to drink sangria by my ex GF's mom who grew up in spain is at room temp (something about the smoothness of the wine and brandy?) but in the heat sometimes with chilled perrier & cold fruit.
I am finally finished with this recipe which initially started out as just 8% RF sangria and 2% champagne which, simple as it is, is UHmazing! But since I started out with this intending a more complex recipe I kept tweaking & playing with it & have come up with something juicy, boozy, bubbly, fruity...and in perfect time for our stupidly late warm weather.
(if you have the non SC version of sangria, it should be increased to 8%)
Champagne gives it a touch of bubbly booziness which is enhanced by the soda base (you can almost feel it fizz on your tongue on the exhale) & liquid amber. The combo gives such a contradictory but unique mouth feel.
Mexican cactus gives it some juiciness (really an awesome flavor from Molin Berry, if you haven't tried it, do it NoW!)
The fruits; Royal Orange juice, Lemon, cherries/black cherry, shisha lime are for the fruits added to the sangria
