Star-spangled Red, White and Blue Sangria

June 30, 2009

In celebration of our nation’s independence day, dress up your sangria in a patriotic red, white and blue theme. Red, white and blue sangria is the ideal drink to serve at upcoming July 4th holiday parties and events because it is easily made in bulk, is inexpensive, doesn’t require much prep time, and is sure to satisfy even the pickiest palates.
Make this easy sangria with simple ingredients you have on hand. Use an inexpensive, light white wine such as a pino grigio, rather than an oaky chardonnay. Look for wines that have melon or citrus flavors that will be complimented by the fruit in the sangria. Although you may use an inexpensive wine for this recipe, make sure to use a wine that you would actually enjoy drinking on its own. Remember, if you use poor quality wine, you will have poor quality sangria.

Ingredients (serves 4 to 6 persons):
1 bottle of white wine
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup agave nectar
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup strawberries
1/4 cup cherries
¼ cup raspberries
¼ cup pineapple (or peaches or both!)
Juice of ½ a lemon (add some zest if you’d like)
Garnish- 1 apple peeled

Directions: Prepare 1 day in advance. Blend all ingredients together and let sit overnight in the fridge. For the garnish, slice an apple into thin to medium slices. In the center of each slice, make a cut out shape of a star (you can use a small star-shaped cookie cutter, stencil or free hand). You could also incorporate the apple stars into the sangria mix.

Feel free to get more creative with this recipe by adding a splash of champagne or seltzer for a bubbly effect. Experiment with the flavors by using different fruit combinations or by adding fruit flavored liquors, alternative sweeteners, or fresh herbs from the garden.
This star-spangled red, white and blue sangria is deliciously refreshing, perfect for a night watching fireworks.
