Cool off this summer with sangrias!

This past week I attended a party and was asked to bring a drink. I decided to put to use a new recipe and make sangrias! They were a huge hit.

Use this recipe to wow your friends and stay cool this summer.

Our host had the cutest mason jars, with holes in the lids for paper straws!


2 (750- ml) bottles your favorite rose wine

1 (750-ml) bottle sparkling water or club soda

3/4 to 1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup fresh raspberries

1 cup diced strawberries

1 cup diced nectarines or peaches

2 blood oranges or navel/seville oranges, juiced

1 lemon, juiced


In a large 1-gallon pitcher, combine all ingredients and stir well to combine and dissolve the sugar. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

I promise you won’t be disappointed! The sparkling water is nice to lessen the sweetness a bit, but don’t worry it’s still plenty sweet.

    I am not sure, but what I did was prepare all of the fruit (juiced and diced) the night before, then combined it all day of plus the seltzer and the sugar… Worked well for me!
