Ever since my party last week, I’ve been obsessed with Sangria. Until I made the peach one, I’d never considered making a sangria that was exclusively dedicated to one fruit flavor. But it got me thinking about my favorite fruit flavor, raspberry. I will eat or drink raspberry flavored anything. So I decided to concoct a raspberry sangria, and I am REALLY happy with how it turned out!
1 bottle white wine
1 cup frozen raspberry lemonade (defrosted)
1 cup club soda
1/2 cup raspberry liqueur
Thinly slice your strawberries. I used five large strawberries. Then put your strawberries and raspberries in a pitcher. Fun trick – if you freeze your raspberries, you can add them to your sangria and they will act like ice cubes without watering down your drink. I always do this at parties.
Pour the raspberry liqueur over the fruit, then let it sit in the fridge for an hour or so.
Add the defrosted lemonade mix.
Add your wine next.
Finally, add the club soda. Stick your pitcher in the fridge – for best results, make at least 24 hours in advance.
Raspberry sangria, mmm, so delicious and pretty.
My mom and Aunt Lynn, as if sensing there was sangria to be had, stopped by my house.
I really had to twist their arms to taste the sangria.
Two thumbs up!
Annie’s thumbs up is half-hearted. She’s not pleased that her strawberries were in a dish instead of in a drink.
Some notes – my mom, who is not a wine drinker, loved the sangria. She said it was “perfectly sweet.” My aunt, who IS a wine drinker, thought that while it was good, it could stand to be slightly less sweet. If you want your sangria to be slightly less-sweet, I suggest using 1/4 cup raspberry liqueur and 1 1/4 cups club soda. Let your sangria marinate for a day, and then if you want it sweeter, add more liqueur.
I think I’m always going to have this sangria in my fridge – it’s the perfect, “hey, can I get you a drink?” drink for unexpected guests!
