Summer Berry Sangria

Summer Berry Sangria #summer #cocktail #recipe

A sweet sparkling sangria loaded with luscious summer berries is the consummate summer cocktail.  This recipe is so easy you will be making it all summer long.

Sitting in the back yard on a hot summers day, sipping away on a sweet Summer Berry Sangria while you enjoy your loved ones.  I can hardly think of a better summer moment.  Chad and I really enjoy gatherings with our family and friends: the kids running around in the back yard while I man the grill.

I prepare an array of burgers, sides, icy treats and cold summer drinks.  A feast fit for our crew as we come together to celebrate and make memories.  Nothing could be sweeter.

A pitcher full of your new favorite sangria couldn't be more perfect.  It is packed full of macerated summer berries and lemons, a sparkling moscato wine makes the perfect sangria.  But, you better have a double batch ready.  This is so good it will disappear in a blink!

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.

  3. May I ask how sweet is this sangria? It looks great but we are not big fans of super sweet drinks. Thanks!

    1. If you are worried about it being too sweet, use less sugar on the berries (e.g 1/4 cup instead of 1/2 cup, or even less than that) and then if it isn't sweet enough you could add simple syrup (if you have it) when serving? The sugar just needs to cut through the sharpness of the berries a little.

    2. You could also use a dry wine and not add any sugar. I use Merlot in my red sangria and it is fine. I also don't like sweet drinks!!! Moscato is sweet on its own. For the sparkle add some sparkling water or club soda or ginger ale! Yum!!

  4. Is there a non alcohol version?

    1. You can substitute 7-Up/Sprite or ginger ale for the wine and it would be lovely. Enjoy and let us know how it goes.

  5. AmuLu, I'd imagine ginger ale could be substituted for the alcohol with the addition of some kind of fruit juice to sweeten it up? let us know if you try!

  6. Or a good (Martinelli's) sparkling apple juice or grape juice ?
