The Fort Recipe: Strawberry Sangaree

Excerpted from Holly Arnold Kinney’s “Shinin’ Times at The Fort”

Fruit “sangarees” – cocktails similar to the wine beverage sangria – were popular in the days of Bent’s Old Fort. Fruit syrups were combined with red wine and ice for a cool, refreshing drink. Made the same way at The Fort, they’ve previously been in high demand during the hot summer months.

You will need:

  • ½ cup frozen strawberries in syrup
