4th of July Sangria Ingredients
This summer sangria recipe comes together with simple ingredients and whips up in a snap.
- White wine: Since this is the base for the sangria, you want to make sure you use a bottle of white wine that you really enjoy the flavor of. My preference for this cocktail is a Pinot Grigio. It isn’t too sweet or too dry. Make sure your bottle of wine is chilled before making the sangria.
- White rum: Dark rum will change the flavor of the sangria, so make sure to use a light or white rum.
- Orange liqueur: Triple Sec is a budget-friendly option, and Cointreau is our mid-range choice.
- Simple syrup: This is optional and only needed if this sangria isn’t sweet enough for your liking without it. Taste the sangria and add enough simple syrup until the drink is sweet enough for your liking. It is super easy to make your own using our Simple Syrup recipe.
- Blueberries: You need blue for this red, white, and blue sangria. Blueberries add a delicious pop of color and flavor. Fresh or frozen berries will work, using frozen berries helps to keep the sangria chilled.
- Raspberries or strawberries: For the red in this patriotic sangria. You can use either raspberries, strawberries, or both.
