This Sangria Margarita Recipe Is a Twist on Your Favorite Cocktail

La Puerta Azul in Millbrook shows us how to combine two classic cocktail recipes for the perfect summertime sip in the Hudson Valley.

One of our favorite summer drinks in the Hudson Valley is easily sangria. After all, what’s not to love? There’s wine, of course, and there’s also often a slew of summer fruits and berries that make the libation even more delightful.

Lucky for us, our friends at La Puerta Azul in Millbrook put their own spin on this seasonal sip by combining it with another favorite: the margarita. Made with burgundy red wine, a splash of both apricot and regular brandy, peach schnapps, and amaretto, this is one drink that will wow guests at your next summer gathering. To finish it off, don’t forget to toss in your favorite fruits (La Puerta Azul recommends oranges, limes, cherries, and lemons).

Here, we share recipes both for a pitcher of sangria and a personal sangria margarita serving. Not only is this sangria margarita recipe perfectly refreshing, but it’s also a breeze to prepare. Salud!
