Berry Red Sangria Recipe for your Labor Day Picnic

 Entry #2792, August 28, 2013

For Labor Day this weekend, we are all planning our holiday picnics, barbecues, and décor.  Don’t let the drink menu slip your mind as a great way to add some patriotic color and refreshing flavor!  This Berry Red Sangria is light and fruity, with red and blue colors that will look great on the picnic table.  Really make the drinks center stage by using cute glasses, like mason jars or painted wine glasses, for a holiday feel.  The simple, sweet taste is the perfect complement to a summer afternoon and a barbecue for two or twenty.

If you prefer, you can easily turn this drink into a mocktail.  Simply swap out the alcohol for more ginger ale and fruit juice for a bubbly and family-friendly substitute.

Don’t be afraid to play with the liquid ratios, this is an easy drink to customize with different amounts or types of alcohol, or even using different fruits completely!  This sangria will be a crowd pleaser that never gets old with all of the possible tweaks.

Labor Day – Berry Red Sangria

yields approximately 3 liters

Ingredients:

1 bottle of your favorite dry white wine

Directions:

1:  Using an ice cube tray, fill each section halfway with water and add blueberries to each cube.  Place in the freezer until solid.

2:  In a large pitcher, combine the white wine, rum, and fruit juices.  Feel free to adjust the ratios to your preference.  Add the sliced fruit and chill the pitcher in the freezer for at least 2 hours so the fruit can infuse the sangria.

3: For serving once the ice cubes are solid and the sangria is chilled, add the ginger ale just before pouring to keep it bubbly.  Then pour the sangria into glasses and add the blueberry ice cubes.  Garnish with a sliced strawberry and sip away!  Refrigerate any leftovers… Though there’s almost never a drop left after a Labor Day picnic.
