Camping Sangria is an easy cocktail to make while camping. It is sweet and refreshing with club soda, orange juice and red wine.
When it comes to camping, I like to make things as easy as possible. Many times I will bring a bottle of wine along with my vegan travel food, but there are times when I want something special.
This Camping Sangria is just that. It takes wine to a whole new level.
I added orange slices and orange juice for a fruity flavor, a bit of coconut palm sugar for some sweetness, and some club soda for a bit of bubbly. Not only does it make your wine more fun, it extends your drink as well.
When you are out in the sun, wind, or high altitudes, it is good to have that extra water and orange juice to keep you from getting dehydrated, along with the electrolytes too.
Since a 32 oz. mason jar only holds half the bottle of wine and half the other ingredients, this can be made twice in one day, or in two large mason jars. You could also cork the bottle of wine or use a vacuum wine stopper and make the rest of the Camping Sangria the next day.
My intention was to have some frozen grapes to keep the sangria cold, but I didn't get around to buying grapes. (Getting ready for camping is a lot of work!)
Speaking of treats while camping, some Campfire Stuffed Bananas are another great way to end the day.
Camping can be a lot of work, especially when you are setting up everything, then going for a hike afterward. This sangria is a great way to relax after all that hard work.
