Berries and Lime Sangria

I love serving Sangria for parties.

It’s light and refreshing and you can make it ahead of time, which is always a bonus when you’re getting ready for a party!

Plus, you make up a whole batch at a time so you don’t have to be running around fixing people’s drinks all night. Which means more time for you to enjoy the party, too!

This berries and lime Sangria is my new summer favorite.

Ingredients

Add rose wine to the fruit

It is a little different than a traditional Sangria because it uses rose wine (instead of red). Which is perfect for summer because it’s not as heavy, and tastes more refreshing.

The addition of all the berries (strawberries, raspberries and blueberries) also makes the drink feel very summery, and means you can take advantage of fresh summer produce.

Then the limes cut out some of the sweetness, making the perfect summer blend!

Traditionally, sangria is served in a pitcher.

Which works quite well, and is a perfectly fine option.

However, for parties, I love to serve it in a drink dispenser.

Beverage dispensers make it really easy for everyone to help themselves, and cut down on the amount of spills.

Plus, it looks really pretty.

Ingredients

  • 3 limes
  • 1 16- ounce  package of strawberries
  • 1 6- ounce package of raspberries
  • 1 6- ounce package of blueberries
  • 2 750 ml bottles of White Merlot or other rose wine
  • 1 750 ml bottle or 3 cups of club soda
  • 1 750 ml bottle or 3 cups of lemon lime soda

Instructions

  • Wash all of the fruit, including the limes. Since they go into drink with their skins on, you want to make sure to remove any chemicals.
  • Slice the strawberries and limes and put them in the pitcher.
  • Add the rest of the berries.
  • Pour the wine over the top of the berries.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or up to 24 hours.
  • When you are ready to serve, add the club soda and lemon lime soda and some ice.

Notes

I tend to use whatever berries are available at the time that I'm making it. I've made versions with strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries (and combinations of all of the above). And they have all turned out great, so don't be afraid to be a little creative and come up with your own combinations.
The amounts and types of berries listed here are just guidelines. Feel free to add more or less of any of them depending on what you like. Similarly, you can change the amounts of club soda or lemon lime soda if you like your drinks less or more sweet.
Mixing the fruit and wine in a pitcher lets you serve it in batches I often like to marinate the ingredients in a pitcher and then serve it in a drink dispenser or punch bowl. That way I don't have to put all of it out at the same time (which helps to keep the Sangria from getting too warm).
