Shobha Arugula Sangria Recipe

We love trying new recipes with our Shobha® Simple Syrup for happy hour. We stumbled across this recipe for sangria with arugula! We love arugula – granted we’re usually eating it in a salad so why not try drinking (with) it? We whipped up a batch & the verdict: tasty, tasty success. We’ll definitely be making this again, & again. Is it five o’clock yet?

What you’ll need:

  • 2 (750 mL) bottles dry red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot
  • 1 cup Brandy
  • 1 cup Shobha® Simple Syrup
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 1 16 oz frozen berries (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries)
  • 1 16 oz bag of frozen cherries
  • 4 Meyers lemons, thinly sliced
  • 4 cups fresh arugula
  • 20 oz lemon lime soda

Tools to have on hand:

  • a large pitcher or party dispenser
  • a long handled utensil (spoon or tongs or whatever you got that you can muddle with)
  • a big ladle for serving


  1. Stir together wine, brandy, Shobha® Simple Syrup, triple sec in large pitcher.
  2. Stir in the arugula.
  3. Use a wooden spoon to mull (crush) the arugula so that the flavor is released.
  4. Add all of the fruit to the wine mixture, & lightly mull the fruit to release juices.
  5. Cover & refrigerate for anywhere from 2-24 hours.
  6. Right before serving pour in the soda & give it a good stir.
  7. Ladle or pour (carefully!!) over ice & enjoy!
