Blueberry Sangria

Blueberry SangriaLooking 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.

Recipe Ingredients:

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

Cooking Directions:

  1. 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.
  2. Just before serving, stir in the chilled lemon-lime soda.
  3. Serve in tall glasses over ice cubes, if desired.

Makes about 1 quart; 6 servings.
