The May 2-4 is quickly approaching, which is basically the unofficial kick off to summer, so we must ready ourselves with an arsenal of delicious Summer Sangria recipes!
Here are 5 sangria (among others) recipes that you have to try this summer.
Now this one isnt’t “technically” a sangeria per-say, but it is said to be South America’s spin on the refreshing wine drink!
How delicious and refreshing does that look!? You’re probably already sold.
Here’s what goes in it:
- 2 bottles dry white wine, like Sauvignon Blanc

- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 1/2 cups sliced peaches
- 1 cup sliced strawberries
- 1 cup halved seedless grapes
- Thinly sliced banana
2. Rose Sangria
Rose is great to make sangria with, it’s just a little sweet so you don’t have to add much sweetener and its a good mix between white and red if you can’t decide!
Here’s what goes in this Rosey sangria:
- 2 cups blueberries
- 2 cups blackberries
- 2 cups hulled strawberries

Don’t know what a Bing Cherry is? (because I definitely didn’t…) It’s basically just a wild, sweet cherry! Which can be bought fresh while they’re in season, or canned.
