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!
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.
What season do you drink sangria?
Sangria is a great drink for any time of the year. The key is to switch out fruit and flavors according to the season. This sangria recipe is made with summer fruits and a crisp rose, which makes it perfect for the hot summer months.
What type of alcohol is in sangria?
Sangria usually includes wine and a flavored liqueur, like fruit schnapps or brandy. This twist includes rose and peach schnapps for the perfect summery flavor.
