Red Berry Sangria is the perfect refreshing cocktail recipe to make and sip this Spring! The combination of fruity berry flavor with white wine and vodka is perfect!
I have a serious obsession with sangria! Apple Pie Sangria, Pomegranate Champagne Sangria, Orange Cranberry Sangria, I just can’t get enough. And I’m excited now to share this delicious Red Berry Sangria! It’s fruity and flavorful and so perfectly sweet.
Why You’ll Love this Berry Sangria
- Berries – Obviously you’ll get a delicious berry-filled flavor with this sangria. Berry juice, berry vodka, and fresh berries too!
- Easy & Quick – This is such an easy recipe, that just requires mixing the ingredients and refrigerating. Simple!
- White Wine – We’re using white wine for this sangria recipe which adds a nice sweet flavor to make it extra refreshing. Perfect for summer!
What wine should I use?
This “red” berry sangria has a secret…it’s made with white wine! I love the sweetness Moscato brings to the table, and it’s so delicious in this cocktail. I’ve always loved white wine more than red for sipping, so this drink is right up my alley. The bright fruit flavors mixed with the Moscato make this a little glass of perfection.
You can use any Moscato you prefer (yes, even pink Moscato if you like).
Sangria with Vodka
The other secret ingredient (and probably the most important) is Pearl Red Berry Vodka. I’m sure most people have tried Raspberry Vodka, but this is slightly different. It has a super bright flavor, just like fresh raspberries. However, you can use any berry-flavored vodka. You can also use a “plain” vodka if that’s all you have; there’s still lots of berry flavor from the other ingredients!
Berry Sangria Recipe Tips
- I like using Naked Berry Blast OR V8 Splash Berry Blend because they are really flavorful and have a great consistency. You can substitute for another type of juice if you prefer.
- The lemon lime soda adds a beautiful citrus twist and a nice bubbly texture. You could also use club soda, but I like the citrus flavor.
- Adding the soda just before serving keeps it fizzy (otherwise it will get flat sitting in the fridge for 2 hours).
- To serve, pour over ice and garnish with fresh berries.
Nothing pairs with a cocktail quite like an appetizer! You could go with something sweet and light (like fruit) to complement the drink, or serve with something really snackable (like chips and dip, of course!). I recommend serving this berry sangria with this Port Wine Cheese Log, Strawberry Salsa, or this Food Processor Guacamole.
This berry sangria is a fresh and fruit favorite! I can’t wait for you to try it.
