The first time we tried Morad passion fruit wine, was a couple of years ago at our friend's Sophie 's house. She had a small get to together with some friends and she cooked her Moroccan specialties, something everyone looks forward to eating at her house: meat and vegetable cigars, home made matbouja, chicken and olives, sweet and savory couscous, carrots salad, lamb tagine, mini meatballs with cumin and peas... We are so lucky we get to enjoy her delicious recipes often!
And as if the food was not enough, she also had a great selection of kosher wines. Everyone was talking about the passion fruit wine, so of course we had to try. It was just awesome. A really fruity but not too sweet wine with a great tropical taste.
When we were asked to develop some recipes for Morad wines, we immediately chose the passion fruit (honestly, because we couldn't wait to taste it again!).
We immediately thought of a sangria. Because,really, is there a better drink than a fruity sangria?? Perfect for summer! We gave it a little twist by adding stone fruit, that pairs beautifully with the floral passion fruit taste.
Since we wanted the kids to be able to enjoy the wine as well, we made a mango passion fruit wine coulis (where the wine is reduced so the alcohol has evaporated) and used it as a filling for dark chocolate bonbons. Our kids devoured them as we were making them!
You can find the recipe for the bonbons here. Sangria recipe coming soon 🙂
