Eat Drink & Be Mary: Red White and Blue Sangria


Red White and Blue Sangria

You may have seen on Snapchat (mary_timmerman), that my best friend came and visited for the weekend.  Y'all there is absolutely nothing that a weekend spent with your best friend, sun, and sangria can't fix.  

I can't believe the weekend has already come and gone, but the good news we already have beach plans for July.  A whole week of being in the same place as my best friend.  I can't hardly wait!

But back to that Sangria...

We originally planned on making this Sparkling Patriotic Sangria from Gimme Some Oven.  However, we weren't feeling the apples, and made a couple other adjustments as well.  

And all were in agreement that it was one very delicious, red white[ish] and blue sangria.  Perfect for a lazy day by the pool, celebrating any patriotic holiday or spending time with your best gal friend.

2 Cups of Apple Juice
1 Bottle of Moscato
1 Bottle of Bubbly Pink Moscato
2 Bottles of Dry Champagne
1 Pint Blueberries
1 Container Raspberries *see below*
1 Pound Strawberries

Wash fruit, then hull and slice strawberries.  In a pitcher, combine all of the ingredients and chill for at least 1 hour.  

Boom.  It's that easy y'all.  I'll have to admit, before the first time that I made Sangria I always thought it was a lot harder than it actually is.  I mean, slice fruit and pour bottles of wine and juice in a pitcher?  Does it get any easier?  

Also, we used raspberries because the original recipe {linked above} called for it, but we all agreed we would definitely do without the next time...that is unless you are a big raspberry fan.  They became soggy very quickly, and you still get the red with the strawberries.  

Now that's two things off my Summer bucket list {the first?  finally picked a new paint color for our dining room -- eek!}.  What should I tackle next?

What is your favorite Sangria recipe? (We need a new one to try on our beach trip)  What is your favorite red, white and blue recipe?  Happy Summer y'all.

ps. my NEW bar cart {as you may have seen on snapchat} is currently on sale at Target for $64.  Run don't walk.
