Red, White & Blue Sangria

Happy 4th of July!

We are having a cookout today at Architect’s house and I agreed to bring a festive cocktail.  

So I searched Pinterest for a patriotic potion and I found a Red, White & Blue Sangria courtesy of    Younger daughter pointed out that there is no juice involved…there is berry-flavored vodka but there’s enough fruit to take care of the fruit detail.  

Red, White & Blue Sangria

2 bottles dry white wine.  I used Yellow Tail Sauvignon Blanc.
1 cup triple sec
1/2 cup berry-flavored vodka
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup simple syrup (I used Stirrings)
1 cup blueberries
1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks or stars punched out of mini cookie cutters.  I used the star in my Pampered Chef mini cookie cutter kit.

Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Serve well-chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or serve over ice.

To enjoy a non-alcoholic version of this DELICIOUS sangria, substitute the following: For the Vodka, sparkling water; for the Triple Sec, fresh orange juice; for the White Wine, white grape juice. Follow the same directions and enjoy!

Looks like a keeper. I am always looking for a great sangria recipe. Have tryed many over the years some good, some not so. I like the addition of the berry flavored vodka.
