Patriotic Red-White-Blue Sangria

Independence Day in the United States is celebrated on the Fourth of July. This is when our founding fathers signed our Declaration of Independence to stand apart from Britain. It was an incredibly bold step they took - those men who signed the document were hounded and slain for their action! We should honor and celebrate their sacrifice, and treasure our nation with all its strengths and areas for growth.

The color theme is red, white and blue - you can of course use this same idea for any red-white-blue themed event that you have!


1 750ml bottle fruity white wine
1/3 cup sugar
3/4 cup apricot-flavored brandy
6 tbsp thawed lemonade concentrate
1 cup sliced red grapes
1 cup whole strawberries
1 cup sliced purple (blue colored) grapes
1 cup blueberries

Mix together the white wine, sugar, brandy and lemonade until well mixed.

Add in the red grapes, strawberries, purple grapes and blueberries. Refrigerate overnight.

Serve the next day from a large pitcher filled with ice. The items create a red and blue set of colors floating in a "white" drink!

Decorate with flags or streamers. Enjoy!

To turn this into a single-glass sangria recipe, a typical assumption is that one 750ml bottle of wine yields four large glasses of wine. Divide all ingredients shown by four. If you're making just one glass worth you probably don't want to wait for the overnight soaking. If the mixture doesn't soak, you just won't get as much of the fruit / berry flavors permeating the sangria.

Note: I created these sangria recipes and have had them online for years. If you find similar sangria recipes elsewhere, it's because someone copied my idea. I do appreciate it when visitors write in to warn me about the plagiarism - but usually there's not much I can do about it! What's really funny is when they copy my design right down to my sangria pitcher. That's a bit much :)
