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!

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!

  1. Don’t you have colitis? Why do you keep drinking so much. Just as a friendly – although you probably heard it before – alcohol and colitis isn’t the smartest thing to mix

  2. Sangria is one of my favorites, but like your previous post about good and bad, I think this falls into that category. When it is done right, it’s incredible, but sometimes it’s sugary and the wine is hidden. As a wine love, I like to have that taste in there somewhere.

    The frozen berries is a good addition. I also love making it in a pitcher with a wooden spoon for a rustic look as well as picking out the marinated fruit chunks.

  3. I always use Barefoot wines for little “cocktails” like this because they’re so good and inexpensive!

  4. You know what, I make this a LOT at home and to take to the lake during the summer and it never ocurred to me that 1. it was considered Sangria and 2. to use berries ( I always just use limes!). Can’t wait to try it out with berries! mmm. It’s a good way to enjoy a cocktail without drinking too much alcohol too!

  5. Ahh, that truly does look so good, right about now! I’m a big fan of Barefoot wines, I think they are of such high quality, plus they are available in so many great flavors, like my favorite – Moscato!

  6. Totally unrelated, but have you ever heard of grass fed in JP? It’s amazing. Alcoholic milkshakes — need I say more? Sounds like a place you and Mal should check out sometime.

  7. the way I make mine is a bottle of red wine, I just ask the person at the liquor store for one used for sangria. 3 each lemon, limes and oranges, I juice half and slice the rest. a few shots of brandy about a cup of ginger ale, club soda, or lemon-lime soda, if you make it the night before the flavors mend and it taste like fruit punch I love it.

  8. I love sangria and this recipe is so much easier than what I’ve been doing! And I love that you used the word “pervade”!

  9. I bet you could use Polar pink grapefruit seltzer and save the calories and the sugar. It’s my favorite summer drink this year.

  10. This is almost exactly the sangria I have been making myself all summer except I don’t use the soda. I use a flavored seltzer water instead. Either mandarin orange or raspberry lime. Giant has a ton of flavored seltzer waters. I use barefoot or naked grape for wine. Both have good taste I think and very budget friendly. 🙂

  11. I made this recipe for a get together I had Saturday night, everyone loved it! Even my husband who usually only drinks beer gave it the thumbs up, thanks for the recipe 🙂
