Summer Sangria

Today me and the hubs are on the road. First, we are headed to Cleveland, my hometown…via car…yeah, I know, we’re crazy like that. But, we also have to go to Montreal as I have a conference to go to there so it will be nice to have a car. I’m so excited to spend time with my family there that I haven’t seen for a year! I’m not looking forward to the really long drive though. My husband has trained me well for long drives as we have driven from Florida to California a number of times now. Oi. I know.

Today, I have a fun and easy sangria recipe for you all that is perfect for your 4th of July BBQ! I’ve told you already how much I love me some sangria! My grocery store had a sale on strawberries and when I spotted a container packed with beautiful and perfect strawberries, I knew sangria just had to be made! Seriously, wine-soaked strawberries are freaking awesome!

You could also add some raspberries if you want to keep with the red, white, and blue theme! With all the fruit and triple sec, I thought this sangria was plenty sweet, but if you want add more sweetness, add some simple syrup.

The perfect party sangria to celebrate the 4th of July!


  • 2 bottles dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup triple sec
  • 3 cups club soda

  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup diced pineapple
  • simple syrup (optional) (see note below)


  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a large pitcher. Stir well and refrigerate for at least 4 hours before serving.


To prepare simple syrup, combine about a 1/2 cup sugar and a 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan. Heat until the sugar dissolves. Mixture should thicken as it cools. Add as much syrup as you desire to sweeten the sangria.
