homemade sangria

the weather is warming up and that calls for some refreshing beverages for after work happy hours, saturday picnics, and sunday afternoons! one of my favorite drinks to whip up for friends is homemade sangria. it is almost as easy as grabbing beer on your way home from work and putting it in the cooler. this is just a little more fruity, pretty, and girly (boys still drink it – but maybe not in pictures! lol).

ONE, TWO, THREE

1. collect all ingredients : lemonade with raspberry from the Simply brand (or juice of choice!),  a bottle of Moscato (or wine of choice), lemon lime soda water, and frozen fruit ( i use strawberries, mango, raspberries, and pineapple!).

2. dump it: dump all ingredients into  a pitcher. depending on desired alcohol content, use more or less juice/ soda water.

3. enjoy it! invite your friends over, throw a party, chat on your couch, play games, laugh at youtube videos, and spend time together! food and drink has a way of drawing hearts together and establishing relationships. invite people over just because and sit on the porch drinking some homemade sangria. you wont regret it.

MUGS & PITCHER from Personal Creations. i got the monogrammed mugs and engraved picture from there! i love having them for events like this! they make great housewarming, wedding, or just because gifts! 
FRIENDS: the friends that you see here are our real friends! Bruce was doing the dishes and felt like it was better for him to stay out of the photo shoot. John was suckered in when i poured him a glass and started snapping away! this is real life. 
WHAT DO YOU ALWAYS MAKE FOR FRIENDS WHEN THEY COME OVER?

    I LOVE your pitcher and mugs! Were they a wedding gift? So cute!!

  • i've never had sangria before, but man this looks delish! you've convinced me!!! we have mason jars with a "B" on them and i love it! may have to look into getting a personalized pitcher! 🙂

  • YUM! This is almost my exactly how I make it, except I just use oranges, strawberries and lemons! I love the idea of mango and pineapple. And I like to let it "marinate" for 24 hours – the fruit ends up being the best treat!!

  • These pictures are so fun! I really love the mugs and pitcher! So cute!

  • Mar

    Looks so yummy! I may have to try this in the summer. Thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Mmmm, I love sangria and I've been looking for a good recipe! Thanks for sharing. I'm also really loving the glasses and pitcher. So cute!

  • Wow!!! I needed to make this like yesterday! 🙂 Looks so yum!

  • Pinning this now! Sounds perfect for summer – can't wait to try!

  • Do you think you could make a mocktail version of this? I know nothing about alcohol except that I've never liked any that I've tried. But the fruit and juice sounds good!

  • totally! yeah. it is a sweet wine anyways (you can't even taste the wine) but you can totally make it safe for the whole family! I recommend just adding some more of the carbonated water (lemon or lime flavored) to add a little of the bitterness to tone the sweetness down!

  • 🙂 you are so welcome! and no worries, the link up is live for the whole week and I will have a new one of Monday! I would love to work with you on a sidebar ad 🙂 XOXO

  • Delish! Who doesn't like Sangria?! I should try to make some homemade soon 🙂

  • This looks delicious! I always make sangria with red wine, but I think I'm going to have to try this white based version. The mango in it sounds perfect:)

  • I know! I am much more into the white wine version – I just like the taste much better personally!

  • you should! it is so easy too 🙂

  • oranges and strawberries sound great!

  • yeah! I love them 🙂

  • thanks Carrie! No they were a gift from Personal Creations!

  • i am making this tomorrow! so excited! 🙂

  • I made this tonight when I got home from work! So good! The only problem is I'm more likely to drink the whole bottle of wine in one sitting because the sangria is just that good. Oops 🙂

  • yum!! I know it, that is why I invited friends over to help me drink it!!
