'Red Wine and Blue' Sangria

Happy Fourth of July! Hope you're celebrating somewhere fun and trying to avoid Hurricane Arthur! Last weekend my mum made this 'red wine and blue' sangria for my brother's graduation party, and it was a pretty big hit. I figured it would be great for a patriotic weekend! The recipe is from the blog East Coast Creative.

Red wine (we used merlot)
Sliced strawberries

We used equal parts wine and Sprite for the sangria, but you could also do a 2:1 ratio for less wine (or more wine if you're feeling crazy). East Coast Creative also suggests alternating the strawberry and blueberry layers before pouring in the wine and Sprite, so that the fruity flavors blend evenly.

I will warn you that this sangria is fruity and sweet. So, if that's not your thing, this drink may not be the one for you. Otherwise this sangria could be the perfect last-minute addition to your Fourth of July weekend menu, since it's so easy and quick to make. I'd love to hear what you think in the comments section below!

Happy 4th!!

  1. I prefer the white one. I think that if you'll take a white wine, mandarin and apple for it, you'll feel the difference.
