A Taste of Summer | LemonBerry Sangria

Summer is my very favorite time of year in New England. I love the warm weather and all the fun recipes that go along with it. I was so excited when I found this one on Pinterest. First of all I love Sangria but I’ve never tried making it myself. This recipe looked easy enough for me to attempt and when I decided to have a girl’s Bachelorette Season Finale party at my house, I knew this was the one I had to make (it was pink in the picture!).

Things I learned in my process of making this recipe twice:

  1. It’s hard to mess up Sangria
  2. You can never have too much fruit
  3. You can never make enough. 🙂

Ingredients
  • 2 lemons, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, cored and sliced (any kind)
  • 1 cup strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
  • 1 750 ml bottle white wine (I used Lucky Duck Chardonnay)
  • 1/2 cup white rum
  • 4 cups lemon-lime soda (I used Sprite)
Preparation
  1. Add lemon slices to a large pitcher. Follow with the apples, then strawberry slices.
  2. Pour the wine and rum over the top.
  3. Cover and place in the refrigerator for 4 – 5 hours.
  4. Take out of the refrigerator and add the soda. Add a few pieces of the fruit to your glass and pour sangria over to serve.
  5. ENJOY a glass (or two) with some friends and get outside before it’s too late to enjoy!
