are typically a base spirit, some wine, and a whole lot of fruit. They now come in many flavors and levels of complexity and this particular sangria falls into the delightfully simple category. The base of the Sparkling Acai Sangria is VeeV Acai Spirit - not a liqueur
, but not a flavored vodka
either - and it adds an interesting taste to the background. If you have developed a taste for the flavor of acai berries then you will really enjoy how it plays off the elderflower liqueur (St. Germain
is a great option) and fresh squeezed orange juice.
Go with whatever is in season on the fruit, this is a sangria and there are no rules and you really cannot go terribly wrong no matter what you choose.
