The big fireworks holiday will be here before you know it here in the USA, and it’s usually celebrated with festive parades, hot summer barbecues, and a whole lot of red-white-and-blue paraphernalia.  I’m a sucker for that kind of stuff, having already shared my 100 red-white-and-blue recipe links several weeks ago.  Here’s another one to add to the list:  Red, White and Blue Sangria.

Red, White and Blue Sangria - recipe from RecipeGirl.com
I’m an enormous fan of Sangria of every sort… red, white, peach, strawberry… I love them all. This one is a white sangria with added triple sec and berry-flavored vodka. A little lemon juice and simple syrup, along with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and pineapple round out the recipe. It has a bit of a patriotic vibe to it with red, white (pineapple… a stretch, I know), and blue fruit floating around, especially if you take the time to cut stars from your fresh pineapple 🙂

Red, White and Blue Sangria

Love this recipe for a patriotic holiday...
Yield: 8 to 10 servings

Prep Time:15 minutes

Ingredients:
  • 2 bottles dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc is good)
  • 1 cup triple sec
  • 1/2 cup berry-flavored vodka
  • 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup simple syrup (see tips below)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 1/2 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup raspberries
  • 1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks
Directions:
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  2. Serve well-chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or serve over ice.
Tips:
  • To make 1/2 cup simple syrup, boil 1/2 cup water and add 1/2 cup granulated white sugar. Turn heat to simmer and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat and let cool. Now it's simple syrup!
  • Use fresh fruit for this recipe. Frozen just won't be great.
  • To make star-shaped pineapple pieces, cut long & wide pieces of pineapple off the side of the fresh fruit. use a star cutter to cut shapes.
