Blueberry Sweet Tea Lemonade Sangria

Summer is made for sipping sangria. This Blueberry Sweet Tea Lemonade Sangria is a twist on the classic. Crisp white wine is blended with sweet tea, lemonade, and a splash of blueberry vodka.

Sangria… It’s the beverage that brings my family and friends together in the summer. If I send out a group text with the word “sangria” followed by a question mark, I’ll receive the following response, “When, where, and what time?”

It’s always a good time when a pitcher of sangria joins the party.

Once the sun starts to set and the intense heat of the day begins to wane, we emerge from the comforts of our air-conditioning and head over to my parents’ house to toast the evening. They have a huge deck that my mom and I have been working hard to turn into a tacky tiki oasis, equipped with tiki bar, outdoor seating, lounge chairs, and strands of lights that twinkle from above.

Our newest and most anticipated addition is the Jacuzzi hot tub we purchased a few weeks ago. I can’t wait to jump in my donut float (yes, I bought a float for the hot tub) and relax until my fingers and toes wrinkle.

I’m the designated cocktail shaker…always! Since I prefer to mingle with friends and family rather than work the bar, I always choose a cocktail that can be easily prepared and served. I call them pitcher cocktails. It’s a cocktail that gets mixed right in the pitcher you’re going to serve it in. Set out some pretty glasses and an ice bucket next to the pitcher, and you have yourself a self-serve cocktail station.

This Blueberry Sweet Tea Lemonade Sangria is probably my easiest sangria recipe to date, and it’s all thanks to Lipton Half and Half. It’s a crisp, refreshing blend of sweet tea and lemonade, and it happens to be my summer beverage of choice. All you have to do is unscrew the cap and pour. No prepping tea bags, boiling water, or squeezing lemons.
