It’s the 4th of July, this is a great opportunity to post about a berry sangria that also happens to be Red, White and Blue! Today there is always fireworks, friends, good food and drinks, what more is there to ask for?
I was looking through my blog feed and realized that I have recently posted a drink recipe, oops! I promise I don’t spend all of my time boozing but I love having colorful drinks for any occasion. AND I have been super busy moving to Chicago, but there will be another blog on that soon, so I’m not going address that right now.
Anyways, Sangria can be amazing if you make it right. I love sweet fruity drinks, I haven’t figured out how people acquire a taste for bitter wine and other drinks. If you have the secret, hook me a girl up! Until then, I will be over here drinking alcohol that tastes like Fruity Pebbles.
I like to make the sangria one night ahead of time that way the fruit flavors have time to disperse into the mixture. I usually make sangria in a large plastic container sealed pitcher so it stays fresh and if you have carbonated wine it keeps the bubbles from disappearing. Then, once it’s time for you guests to arrive you can put it in the decorative pitcher and glasses! Note: the blueberries in this recipe don’t float, I thought they would but was surprised when they went to the bottom.
Now to the recipe…
