Red, White and Blue Sangria

Just in time for Independence Day, it feels like Louisiana emigrated to the surface of the sun. What else could explain the otherworldly heat? Here’s a light and fresh cocktail to keep you patriots cool and happy this holiday. An American take on a Spanish delight: sangria.

  • 1 bottle sparkling white wine or prosecco
  • 2/3 cup white grape juice
  • 2/3 cup vodka
  • 1/3 cup blueberries
  • 1/3 cup raspberries
  • 13 cup strawberries, sliced

Combine in a pitcher and refrigerate for at least two hours to let the flavors meld. To adjust sweetness, use more or less white grape juice. (I like mine on the drier side.) Serve over ice in a tall glass and free yourself from the opressive heat!
