Summer Berry Sangria ~ #SundaySupper
This summer berry sangria is full of sweet berries, sparkling red moscato, and raspberry liquor. It’s extra vibrant and extra fruity. This refreshing boozy beverage is best served chilled and shared with family and friends.
Sangria is my go-to cocktail when I’m entertaining a crowd, hosting a ladies’ night, or spending a night in with my family.
It’s a favorite for so many reasons: 1. You can make it by the pitcher, which makes it a self-serve cocktail–no tending the bar all evening, 2. The flavor combinations are endless. You can get a creative as you like, and 3. It’s refreshing, fruity, and downright delicious. More often than not, it tastes like you’re sipping punch.
Gallo Family Vineyards offers a variety of white, red, and rose that is sure to make your sangria a hit with family and friends.
During the colder months, I usually stick with a sweet red blend as the base for my sangria. When the weather begins to warm up, it’s all about crisp white or a sweet, sparkling red.
My mom and I were just chatting the other day about how we can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can sit on the deck and sip fruity sangria from big, rustic mason jars with colorful straws. For me, sangria is more than just a delicious cocktail. The fruity cocktail reminds me of time spent with my mama and grandmother while we chat about anything and everything.
This week we’re celebrating Moscato Day with Gallo Family Vineyards. Since the weather is still on the nippy side, I went with their warm, fruity Red Moscato. The flavors of sweet citrus, peach, and red berries complement the sweet variety of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and blackberries.
If you’re looking for a lighter blend, try their pink or white Moscato blend. Their Pink Moscato is light, fruity, and effervescent with hints of peach and ripe berries, and their White Moscato is crisp and fruity with hints of honey and citrus notes. Honestly, all three of these blends would be great in this recipe, so it’s really up to you.
I’m pretty passionate about sangria. Half of my cocktail index consists of sangria recipes: Sangrita, Black Cherry Sangria, Fruity Pineapple Sangria, and the list goes on. I’m always thinking of new flavor combinations.
This summer berry sangria is full of fresh strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. I used a combination of Framboise and blueberry vodka to give the sangria a rich depth of berry flavor. It’s the perfect balance of fruity, boozy, and sweet.

Summer Berry Sangria
A refreshing blend of Moscato, Framboise, blueberry vodka, and fresh summer berries.

- Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill.

- If you’re unable to find framboise, you can substitute Chambord or an extra 1/2 cup of blueberry vodka.
- I used a combination of strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, and raspberries for this recipe; however, any mixture of berries will work just fine.
- Add or decrease the club soda depending on how sweet you like your sangria.
