Why KJ Loves Summer Sangria:

This Summer Sangria holds a special place in our family as it is a Summer staple! My mom made the first versions of it and got everyone hooked. Since she just tossed ingredients in to make a wonderfully fruity concoction, I had to tweak things a bit to make it as close to the original recipe as possible. And by golly, it’s a hit every year! Perfect for summertime sipping, backyard bbq’s, and Fourth of July parties. Plus, it’s naturally festive with its “red, white, and blue” colors!

What Type of Wine to Use

Why go for boring red or white wine when you could choose pink? 

This is a rose sangria, which gives the drink a light, refreshing flavor. You can also use pink Moscato. We like this one and this one.

Summer Sangria Variations

Use frozen fruit

Too hot to lift a knife? Frozen fruit is a great option. It also does double duty as ice to keep the sangria chilly. Cool. 

Use club soda…or champagne

You can sub other bubbly options for the lemon-lime soda. The key here is to add this element right before serving so the drink doesn’t go flat.

Use yellow peaches

This summer sangria recipe calls for white peaches, but you can use yellow if you can’t find white peaches at the grocery store.
