This is by far the best sparkling sake sangria recipe ever! Sake sangria? What?! Did you know you can make sangria using sake and plum wine?! It’s similar to the traditional wine sangria, but instead you soak the fruit in plum wine (which is sweet!) and then top it with sparkling sake! We made ours with pineapple and cucumber and it’s just a perfect combination of flavors. The only skill you need to make this delicious libation is knowing how to slice fruit… otherwise there is zero muddling, grinding, shaking or stomping… just kidding. Sake sangria is very light, fruity and so refreshing! The hardest part is finding a friend to pour it for you because it’s a known superstition that you should never pour your own sake!!
