I love everything about summer, especially getting together with friends and family at outdoor parties and barbeques. I mean, who can resist good times, good friends, good food, and good drinks? There’s nothing better than an iced cold cocktail on a hot summer day. Am I right?
When I am hosting a get-together at my home, or when I am invited to attend a barbeque or party, I love making my favorite (ridiculously simple) sangria recipe. It only requires four ingredients, so I can make it quickly before guests arrive or I can pack up all of the ingredients and easily transport them to prepare when I arrive. It’s honestly the easiest recipe ever and everyone loves it. My family and friends now request it at summer parties!
This recipe is also one of the healthiest sangria recipes I have ever encountered. It calls for Barefoot Pinot Grigio and seltzer, so it’s light, refreshing, and relatively low in calories. It’s only sweetened with fresh berries and low-calorie grapefruit soda, so it’s not loaded with sugar and syrupy liquors like some sangria recipes. You can easily enjoy a glass (or two) without guilt!
Simple Summer Sangria
- 3 750 ml bottles of Barefoot Pinot Grigio
- 1 2L bottle of grapefruit soda, such as Fresca
- 1 2L bottle of seltzer
- 1 3-pound bag of frozen mixed berries
Quick tip: Chill wine, soda, and seltzer at least 24 hours before making the sangria, so everything is nice and cold!
In a large container, combine wine, seltzer, and grapefruit soda.
Then, pour in the entire bag of frozen berries. There’s no need for ice because the frozen berries will keep the sangria cold.
Serve immediately or allow berries to pervade the sangria for a sweeter flavor.
This recipe makes approximately 16-20 servings—perfect for a summer get-together!
