Strawberries and citrus fruit are soaked with sugar, orange liqueur, and vodka or tequila, to soften the fruit medley. Red wine and seltzer are added to the mix for an extra-spirited sangria.
1 small grapefruit, quartered and thinly sliced (1 cup)
1 lime, quartered and thinly sliced (1/4 cup)
2 cups hulled and halved strawberries (quartered, if large)
5 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup vodka or blanco tequila
1/4 cup Cointreau or other orange liqueur
Frozen fruit, for serving (optional)
1 bottle (750 ml) dry red wine, chilled, for serving
Seltzer or citrus soda, for serving (optional)
Toss fresh fruits with sugar, vodka, and Cointreau. Cover; refrigerate, tossing occasionally, at least 4 hours and up to 1 day. Fill a glass halfway with frozen fruit, if desired. Add macerated fruits, and top with wine and a splash of seltzer, if desired.
