We borrowed this recipe from celebrity caterer and founder of Elegant Affairs, Andrea Correale. One batch will make one large pitcher of yummy sangria.
2 bottles dry white wine (we like Sauvignon Blanc)
1 cup triple sec
½ cup berry-flavored vodka
½ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
½ cup simple syrup (see recipe below)
1 cup blueberries
1 ½ cups hulled and sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 ½ cups pineapple chunks (use star shaped cookie cutter to cut out patriotic star shapes)
To Make the Simple Syrup:
To make ½ cup simple syrup, boil ½ cup water and add ½ cup granulated white sugar. Turn heat to simmer and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat and let cool.
To Mix Drink:
Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Serve well-chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or serve over ice.Read MoreLess
