Red, White, & Blue Sangria

July 4th is a raucous all-day affair, and in order to host a memorable celebration, you need to do more than simply light up the grill and churn out a few burgers. With just a few fresh ingredients and some acclaimed liquor you can crank the party up a notch with a colorful and holiday-appropriate Red, White, & Blue Sangria. Sangria is experiencing a surge in popularity, and it’s no mystery why: the thirst-quenching flavors of sangria are an obvious antidote to the sweltering summer days of July.

Ingredients

  1. 1) 1 bottle white wine
  2. (Note that you will be incorporating several fruits, so you should rely on a dryer, subtler wine like a Pinot Grigio)
  3. 2) 1 ½ cups sparkling lemonade
  4. 3) ½ cup vodka
  5. Go with a classic like Grey Goose to please the crowd, or venture for the spicy Hangar One Straight Vodka distilled from Viognier grapes and Midwestern grains.
  6. 4) 2 large granny smith apples
  7. 5) 1 pint raspberries
  8. 6) 1 pint blueberries
  9. 7) 1 cup sliced strawberries

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. 1) The morning of your festivities (likely July 4th) wash your Granny Smith apples and slice them fairly thin.
  2. 2) Use your star-shaped cookie cutter to create patriotic star-shaped apple pieces. Plan your cuts so you yield as many stars as possible from each slice.
  3. 3) The rest of the process is simple. In a large pitcher add the white wine, sparkling lemonade, and vodka of your choice.
  4. 4) Wash the remaining berries and add the apple slices, blueberries, raspberries, and sliced strawberries.
  5. 5) Feel free to stir in order to mix the berries, but do not shake once the vodka is in the pitcher.
  6. 6) Refrigerate for up to four hours before serving, and prepare for your all-American beverage to be a smash hit.
