This patriotic red, white and blue sangria is a fun and festive cocktail for the 4th of July or any other patriotic summer holiday!
The 4th of July has always been one of my favorite holidays. My family always spent the 4th at our lake house, hanging out on the water, skiing, and wakeboarding during the day, eating barbecue and shooting off fireworks at night. Some of my favorite memories come from spending Independence Day at the lake with my family.
We no longer have our family lake house and live far from the lake, so Mr. Table and I have more low-key celebrations, usually inviting a few friends over for a barbecue and hanging out in the back yard. And of course, I always make a delicious dessert and something fun to drink.
I'm not a big fan of beer, so I opt for something wine-based (of course). This patriotic red, white and blue sangria is the perfect drink for July 4th and every other patriotic holiday! It's light and refreshing, full of fresh fruit, and it's so fun for summer celebrations.
What I really love about this sangria, besides how cute it looks on your holiday table, is how easy it is to make! Just cut out the stars from apples, stir together with a few ingredients, and let it all sit in the fridge while the fruit soaks up all the boozy goodness.
(I’m not the only one that loves eating all the fruit at the bottom of sangria, am I?)
To finish things off, stir in some bubbles right before serving for a little sparkle, and you've got a party drink that everyone will love!
If you're hosting a BBQ this 4th of July, make sure to make a pitcher of this patriotic red, white and blue sangria for your guests. It's sure to be a hit!
