Summer Sangria Recipe FAQ
Moscato is an Italian wine, made from Muscat grapes. It’s sweet and slightly sparkling, making it a popular dessert wine.
As it’s very light pink or white in color, Moscato wine is often used to make pink sangria recipes for spring and summer events.
It’s fine to make this summer sangria recipe up to 8 hours in advance.
Any longer than that, and the fruit will start to become limp and unappealing. I prefer just 2 hours myself.
It’s not the best idea to use frozen fruit for berry sangria. Fresh fruit holds up well as it sits in the wine, while frozen fruit tends to become mushy and not nearly as appetizing.
Plus, if you use fresh fruit in this sweet sangria recipe, you can munch on it as you are sipping on the drink!
With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
