While in dining out in Portugal, my husband and I had a pitcher of Red Berry Sangria and it was amazing! I was surprised when they brought out the pitcher and then added a bottle of Champagne to it. Whaaaaat?!? Champagne in sangria? Turns out it’s the perfect addition to the sweet berries and red wine. I love me some bubbly.
This Red Berry Sangria is my take on the recipe and it turned out better than I expected. The bonus is that you don’t have to slice up any fruits. Just buy a bag of frozen berries and pour everything else in. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
How to Make Red Berry Sangria
Add 2 cups of frozen mixed berries to a large glass pitcher. Pour in one bottle of red wine. Pinot Noir is a great red wine for sangria, but any red table wine will do. Let that set for about 10-15 minutes to allow the wine and berries to marinate. Add 1 cup of orange juice, 2 tablespoons of lime juice and about 1/4 cup of simple syrup. You can buy cane syrup or you can make your own simple syrup by heating together equal parts sugar and water until the sugar dissolves. That’s it!
Give all of that a stir. When you’re ready to serve, add one bottle of Prosecco. Stir gently. I like to add more frozen berries and ice cubes to wine glasses before pouring the sangria. It just makes for a prettier presentation. 😍
Kristen made me these adorable tags so I just tied it on with some white string. We have some for you below– just select and drag onto your desktop to download.
This is the PERFECT drink for a warm summer day. So refreshing.
