Red White and Blue Sangria

Share with your friends!

This refreshing adult beverage is a perfectly patriotic summer sipper. The mix of wine and berries is delicious and easy to make too. It is perfect for brunch or sipping on the porch.

Cup of white sangria with blueberries and strawberries with pitcher in background.

    It’s that time of year when sitting on the deck and having a nice long relaxing chat seems like the thing to do.  Of course I have a three year old, so sitting still is pretty much not in the picture.  

And having a whole conversation outside of work hours hasn’t happened in well…. three years!  Of course I wouldn’t change it for anything, but it does make the nice drink and catching up with friends sound that much more intriguing.

     But quiet afternoon on the deck or not, this sangria is still festive, still refreshing and still worth making.  I whipped up a batch on Father’s Day.  My husband grilled himself a full pound of T-bone steak, so he didn’t mind a little fruit floating in his wine.

Bottle of wine, triple sec, berries and pitcher ready to be made into sangria.

    Little Dude loved having the strawberry garnish.  He got his own glass with berries floating in apple juice.  

He kept telling me how fancy his glass was with the berry.  He asked for a fancy glass on his next day too.  

We all enjoyed it and someday we will get to have that leisurely afternoon sipping wine.  In the mean time we’ll just have fun making our fancy glasses when the opportunity strikes!
