Summer Sangria

Cherry Berry Sangria from 20something cupcakes

It’s patio party weather, so we want to spend our time sipping drinks outside, not stuck behind the bar making them. That’s when our friend sangria comes in handy. All you need is wine, fruit, and a little booze and/or liqueur. Pour it all together, wait, and then drink with friends. Here are some fun ones that are good for summer.

Watermelon and Raspberry Sangria ~ With a white wine base and sweet summer fruit, this one sounds perfect for a hot weekend in the backyard.

Cherry Berry Sangria ~ A rosé (aka pink wine) mixed with summer cherries and berries makes this one pretty as well as tasty. But I bet it would be just as good with a pinot noir or malbec.

Ginger Plum Sangria ~ Another one with pink wine, this time with seasonal plums and a ginger kick.

Negroni Punch ~ Prosecco adds bubbles, while Campari makes it a little more bitter and deep. Sounds like the perfect match for peaches and summer berries.

Lavender Infused Champagne Sangria ~ Sparkling wine infused with lavender along with lychee and peaches … why am I not drinking this right now?
