Alegria

If you are looking for a nice cocktail made with fresh fruit, but want something other than sangria, this should whet your whistle just right!  This is an Australian recipe from Taste.com.au and I think it will make a delicious summer beverage.  A good amount of tartness to balance out the sweetness, and a delicious amount of fresh fruitiness!

  • Ingredients
  • 2 oranges, cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 ruby red grapefruit, coarsely chopped
  • 2 tbs caster sugar (can substitute with confectioners sugar)

  • 125ml (1/2 cup) limoncello
