Bottoms Up :: Ginger-Plum Sangria

May 2nd, 2012


A bit of exciting news: we’re launching a new series here on called “Bottom’s Up!” where I’ll share the most fabulous cocktails (and a few mocktails, for me this summer!) that I’ve been mixing up for thirsty party guests. Today kicks it off with one that’s perfect for Cinco de Mayo festivities this weekend. Now, I love a classic margarita as much as the next girl, but I’m in the mood to shake things up a bit with a gorgeous, fruity pitcher of sangria! This is the perfect drink for a crowd since a huge batch can be mixed up before the party starts, and I added a bit of extra zing with ginger and fresh slices of seasonal plums (which I’ve been addicted to this month.) Keep reading for more, and don’t miss our Fiesta Favor Bags & this weeks’ mood board for more Cinco-worthy inspiration!


Pitcher from CB2, glassware & napkins from Anthropologie.


Ginger-Plum Sangria

*serves 4


  • 1 bottle rosé wine
  • 1 1/2 cups ginger ale
  • 1 plum, puréed in blender
  • bunch of fresh mint
  • 3 plums, sliced (any color works!)
  • 1 apple, sliced
  • 1 lime, sliced
  • crystallized ginger, for garnish


  1. In a large pitcher, combine rosé, puréed plum and a few sprigs of mint. Muddle the mint a bit, then add 2 of the sliced plums, apple and 4 slices lime. Top off with ginger ale.
  2. Distribute remaining plum and lime slices among 4 glasses. Add ice, if desired. Fill glasses with sangria, then skewer a piece of crystallized ginger onto a wooden pick for garnish. Salud!

    That is so summery! Makes me want to get out on the deck!

    That looks so refreshing! I love rose wine. You decorated it so beautifully with the fruit on bamboo skewers! This is surely going on my pinterest board 🙂
    This reminds me, I made a white sangria once – with a fruity white wine, peach schnapps, lemon juice, sugar, lemon-flavored sparkling water (because I’m such a lightweight when it comes to alcoholic drinks!) sliced peaches, and green grapes (which I had previously frozen). It was a refreshing change of pace for a summer day, lighter than a traditional red wine sangria.

    • Camille Styles says:

      That sounds SO good, Mia – I bet the peaches & green grapes looked really pretty & refreshing.

  4. I’m loving this unique flavor combo for Sangria!

    Gorgeous garnish, and great mix of ingredients! And I’m in love with those glasses! I definitely need more liquor in my sangria. I’ll try your recipe with a splash of brandy.
