Strawberry and Stem Ginger Sangria is sweet and spicy, a delightfully refreshing cocktail for a summer’s day.

Strawberry and Stem Ginger Sangria

This gorgeous sangria simply bursts with bright British strawberries and zingy stem ginger. The strawberries and stem ginger are pureed with a dash of syrup and citrusy lime then topped up with a lovely fruity red wine and a splash of bourbon.

For a Non-Alchoholic Version

The non-alcoholic version is a wonderful alternative if you like or require your drink a little softer. Just make the strawberry and stem ginger base as per the method below, then instead of mixing it with red wine and bourbon, top with soda water. A pretty fantastic virgin cocktail by anyone’s standard.

Strawberry and Stem Ginger Sangria

I think we’re all going to need a little bit of sweet and spicy sangria this bank holiday as by all accounts the heatwave is pawing the ground ready to charge and everyone knows in the UK you have to grab the bull by the horns – this might be the only few days of summer we’re going to get!

    What syrup do you use for this recipe?

    • Georgina says

      When you buy balls of stem ginger they are usually preserved in sugar syrup which is the syrup I used in the recipe. This sugar syrup is infused with all the ginger flavour from the stem ginger so it adds an extra kick of ginger. If the ginger you are using isn’t preserved in syrup that means it could be crystallised ginger which is slightly different as it’s dried so wouldn’t be right for this recipe. Does that help?
