Enjoy a fruity white wine sangria with friends! This will quickly become your favorite summertime drink staple. Simply combine your favorite wine with fresh fruits like watermelon and raspberries to make a fresh and delicious cocktail.
The only word I can think of to describe the weather right now is delicious. It is absolutely perfect outside. I want to put it in a dish and eat it. I have not been able to comfortably sit on my patio often this summer, so I have much appreciation for it right now.
This light and refreshing watermelon raspberry sangria was inspired by this summer weather. I have not many batches of sangria in my life and as I type this I am wondering WHY I've waited so long. This is just the beginning of a beautiful relationship - between fruit and wine, anyway.
HOW TO MAKE RASPBERRY SANGRIA
This sangria is easy to put together, light and refreshing. Wine and raspberries are the best way to unwind!
Place the following into the bottom of a large serving pitcher:
Fresh rinsed raspberries and cubed watermelon.
Pour the raspberry liqueur over the fruit.
Add 2 bottles of Sauvignon Blanc and stir to combine. Chill for a minimum of 2 hours.
Serve chilled, making sure to add some of the fresh fruit pieces to the serving glasses.
You can mix and match the fruits that are in season or replace white wine with red!
Lemon lime soda could be added to enjoy a fizzy sangria.
HOW TO ENJOY YOUR COCKTAIL
Serve it on Mother's Day to celebrate the lovely ladies in your life.
Sunny pool days!
Summer evening gatherings.
Make it a special birthday cocktail to share.
WHAT IS SANGRIA
This refreshing alcoholic beverage is a wine-based drink, served like a punch. It is a traditional red wine served with chopped fruit and occasionally juice or brandy.
HOW LONG DOES SANGRIA LAST
Short answer: enjoy the sangria the same day you make it!
Longer answer: Technically this drink could last 2-3 days. But the fruit that is added to the booze and wine will start to break down and not be as tasty (read: mushy). Add fruit just before serving in order to avoid this issue.
