With Memorial Day and the 4th of July right around the corner, this Red, White & Blue Sangria couldn’t be easier to make AND it looks impressive enough that no one will even know you whipped it up as fast as you did.
I prefer drinks that get their color from natural ingredients rather than food coloring, and the fruit juice in this sangria does the trick for me. Leave out the wine for the kids or those friends who are on alcohol restriction and you still have a festive drink with the addition of the strawberries and blueberries.
Are you ready to wow your guests?
Here’s your shopping list:
1 bottle of sweet white wine (I used a Riesling)
1/3 container of fruit juice concentrate (I used a berry)
1 1/2 cups of fresh blueberries, rinsed
1 1/2 cups of strawberries, de-stemmed and sliced
Bamboo cocktail skewers (mine came from Sur la Table)
Pour the wine into a large pitcher, add the fruit juice and stir. In a separate bowl, lightly muddle the berries with 1 tbsp of sugar until a small amount of juice forms. Add the fruit to the wine mixture and stir. Served chilled. Garnish with leftover strawberries and blueberry skewers.
Happy Memorial Day weekend, y’all.
