I LOVE having people over and our newly redone deck is so big that there is room for many of us to sit 6 feet apart! My girlfriends are coming over this week and I am going to make some Sangria. On a warm summer night, this fruity and cold beverage will be a big hit. And as usual, when I find something fun I want to share it with all of you. Here is how to make Sangria to share with friends. 


Red Wine Sangria 


  • 1 bottle red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 2 cups LaCroix (Berry flavored) or you may use Sprite as well
  • 1 orange
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 lime
  • 12 raspberries
  • 8 strawberries
  • Ice


  1. Wash the fruit. 
  2. Slice all the citrus fruits and remove any seeds.
  3. Remove the tops from strawberries and slice in half.
  4. Fill pitcher halfway with ice. Add fruit first, then wine and LaCroix.
  5. Serve right away, or let chill for an hour.

TIP: Make certain that you refrigerate the wine a day ahead of time.

Enjoy and “Cheers” to you.
