- 1 750 mL bottle red wine blend
- 24 figs sliced in half
- 3 ounces raspberries fresh or frozen
- ¼ teaspoon vanilla bean paste
- 1 tablespoon white sugar
- ¼ cup orange liqueur like Triple Sec
- Prosecco to taste
Mix everything but the prosecco together in a pitcher or carafe. Use a long swizzle spoon to blend everything together gently, taking care not to smash the fruit.
Optional: let the sangria soak together for 2-4 hours.
Pour into serving glasses, and leave room to top with a prosecco floater, the amount is up to your taste.
Garnish with a toothpick speared with raspberries and a lengthwise sliced fig.
