Summer Sangria Recipe

Um, this stuff is the jam.

Light, bubbly, easy and a perfect way to use up all of that yummy Summer fruit, I literally cannot get enough of this Sangria. We've served this Summer Sangria for both big parties and causal get togethers and it's a hit every.single.time.

We had a ton of requests for this recipe during the babe's party so I promised I would blog it - and side note, even those who don't love wine thought this Sangria was worth a swig.

Pro Tip: don't bother with fancy wine, head straight for the $5 bottles in Trader Joe's and get to mixing.

Summer Sangria
 The recipe is inspired by the Lemonade Sangria served at St. Paul Mountain Vineyard

1 bottle semi-sweet white wine 
(a drier Reisling is perfect - I wouldn't use something as dry as a Chardonnay or as sweet as a Moscato, but anything in the middle will work!)
1 can frozen lemonade concentrate
1 2L of Diet Sierra Mist or lemon lime soda of choice
fruit of your choosing, roughly sliced/chopped
(we like strawberries, blueberries and peaches - raspberries, cherries and blackberries would be amazing, too)

Depending on the size of your crowd, mix equal parts wine and lemon lime soda.
Add lemonade concentrate to taste
Give a good stir 
Toss in the fruit and serve

keep chilled if drinking slowly (but I doubt you'll need to worry about it!)

For reference, for the party, we pulled out a large drink canister, mixed one full bottle of wine, an equal amount of soda and 3/4 of the lemonade concentrate. If you'd like the Sangria to stay bubbly, mix small batches and serve immediately or mix in a vessel that can be sealed until ready to consume. 

Cheers!
