Whenever the warm weather rolls around, I find myself getting excited about all of the fun things spring/summer bring. Spending time outside, festivals, picnics, parties, and of course since i’m a huge foodie: the fresh, seasonal flavors! I often find myself getting excited (probably a little too excited lol) about the all of the fresh produce in season when the warm weather comes around. This means tons of fresh veg to grill and juicy, tasty fruit for everything else.
Food has always been a social thing for me, which I think is why I love it so much. I love going out to eat with friends, having a date night at a new restaurant, or having my girlfriends over on a warm night for a glass of sangria. Food is something that brings people together in a really pure way, and I’m totally here for it.
Since warm weather has us all craving light, fresh meals, today I wanted to share *my favorite* EASY sangria recipe I’ve been making for years! This sangria is perfect to sip on for those warm, lazy nights outside with friends. It’s also so easy to make with things you already have in your pantry! All you need is fruit, a bottle of wine, Sparkling Ice® Mystery Flavor, and a little brandy! Once you make this, it’s going to be your go-to recipe. Thank me later.
While I know sangria is traditionally made with red wine, for this recipe, I decided to use white. I love how light and bright the white wine makes this drink and how well it pairs with the sparkling water. Here, I’m using Sparkling Ice Mystery Flavorâ€”which adds a really nice tropical flavor to the drink. The Sparkling Ice has zero sugar and zero calories, which I love, but it’s packed full of flavor. I also love how it has just the right amount of fizz, and it’s a great alternative if you’re trying to kick soda! You can get your own at Acme in the drink isle. Check out mystery offers and recipe ideas here.
For the fruit portion of the recipe, you can honestly use whatever you have on hand! While I really love the combination of the lemons, oranges, and strawberries, there are so many other delicious combos as well! Here are a few others to try:
