This sangria is a tasty, sweet cocktail that celebrates the fabulous flavor of mangoes. With make-ahead convenience, sangria keeps in the fridge for 3-4 days and is a treat to have on hand to enjoy at home. I also love to make a big batch for a party and have it ready when the guests arrive--just remove from the fridge pour! The fruity flavor of this Sangria is so refreshing and always a crowd-pleaser.
Step 1. Assemble the Ingredients:
Step 2. Add the mango chunks and orange slices to a large jar or pitcher. (I use a half-gallon mason jar.) Pour in the wine, Triple-Sec, and mango nectar. Stir to combine.
Step 3. Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours; a day ahead is even better if you have the time.

Step 4. Garnishes are optional. I like to add them to dress up individual glasses. Use wooden skewers to spear chunks of mango and quarter-round orange slices. A sprig of mint adds contrasting color.

Serve the sangria straight or over ice. Include a few pieces of the marinated fruit in each glass.
I like the informality of serving the sangria from big half-gallon mason jars. For a more dressed-up look, serve it from a pretty glass pitcher. A big batch at a party can be served from a punch bowl.
Sangria for every season! Sangria ingredients are easily adapted for whatever seasonal fruits are available. Here are two of my recipes with fruits that are suited to the fall and winter season:
