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.

1. Clerico

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!

  • 1 1/2 cups sliced peaches
  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup halved seedless grapes
  • Thinly sliced banana
  • Ice

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!

  • 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.
