Looking for a fresh summertime cocktail recipe? Blueberry Sangria is just the thing. Stir lemon, orange slices and fresh blueberries into white wine and bubbly soda for a drink that’s as revitalizing and it is relaxing. Making it with the kids? A virgin version of this Blueberry Sangria is great too – just substitute apple juice for the white wine.
1 1/2 cups ready-to-serve blueberry juice
1 1/2 cups chilled white wine or apple juice
1/4 cup orange-flavored liqueur (optional)
1 orange, sliced
1 lemon, sliced
1 cup fresh blueberries
1 1/2 cups chilled lemon-lime soda
- Into a 2-quart pitcher, combine blueberry juice, wine and liqueur, if used. Add orange and lemon slices and fresh blueberries. Chill until ready to serve.
- Just before serving, stir in the chilled lemon-lime soda.
- Serve in tall glasses over ice cubes, if desired.
Makes about 1 quart; 6 servings.
