4th of July Sangria

4th of July Sangria

If you’re looking for the perfect celebratory cocktail to offer guests this 4th of July, look no further! This tasty recipe for red, white, and blue sangria contains everything you need to make this Independence Day special. With sweet white wine, juicy watermelon, tangy pineapple, and ripe berries, this recipe is sure to make a splash at this year’s festivities. A lot of sangria recipes contain sugar or other sweeteners, but this red, white, and blue sangria recipe doesn’t need it because the fruit is sweet enough on its own.   We’ve pureéd watermelon and added it to the wine and sparkling water for the perfect combination of sweet and tangy flavor. To add a little more spirit to your batch, try using a cookie cutter to cut the pineapple into festive American stars.

Don’t drink?  This recipe can be made without the wine. Simply use white grape juice instead.
