Summer Berry Sangria is a refreshing cocktail made with summer berries soaked in red wine with berry infused vodka and a sweet bubbly ginger ale.
I love red wine. By no means am I an expert, but I can certainly tell you if a wine tastes good or not. What else is there to say?
I love summer berries. I live in Oregon – it is sort of a prerequisite. I love to pick as many berries as I can during the summer months and freeze them in mass quantities to use in smoothies, pies, breakfasts, and cocktails all year long.
I love marionberry infused vodka. I don’t know where you live or if this type of vodka is available to you, but it is worth it. Find a way to get your hands on some. It will change your life.
I love ginger ale. It makes my tummy feel better. And it is perfectly sweet with a bit of zip. And its a great mixer in booze.
What happens when you combine all of these things I love with a little sugar? You get this super tasty and refreshing summer berry sangria. Just picture yourself enjoying a warm afternoon with a pitcher of this wonderful drink shared among friends. Yeah… that’s my kind of afternoon.
