Viva sangria should be on everyone’s lips when it’s too hot to drink red wine or you’re craving a potent punch or chilled mulled wine. Sangria is a versatile, easy-to-make- ahead quaff that lends itself well to casual entertaining and large crowds, and it looks fabulous served in tall glass pitchers.

The beauty of this ancient drink is the seemingly infinite recipe variations that let anyone create their own signature version ranging from the traditional red style or white, rosé, sparkling, and frozen versions.

This version is one of my favorites because it includes puréed berries, two tasty spirits, dry white wine, and hints of citrus that perk up the flavor of the berries.

Hope you enjoy it, and; feel free to riff on the recipe and make it your own!
