Summer is almost officially here and cookout season is officially in full swing! We kicked it off a few weeks ago with Mother’s Day but after last summer’ busy cookout schedule I’m okay easing into cookouts this year. Fruit salad is typically our go to cookout dish but this year I might have to change it up from time to time. Sangria is always a great treat and it kind of counts as fruit salad, right? A few days ago I went down the rabbit hole also known as Pinterest and found a number of Sangria recipes that look delicious. Which one do you think looks the best?
White Sangria Recipes
Typically white wine (Riesling to be exact) is my go to wine. As I’ve been researching different Sangria recipes I’ve come to find that there is a big debate between using a sweeter wine and a dryer wine. Depending on what you are in the mood for there seems to be a wide variety of Sangria recipes for everyone’s taste.
// Summer Berry Sangria (Moscato)
// White Strawberry-Lemon Sangria (Chardonnay)
// Tropical White Wine Sangria (Barefoot Sweet White Spritzer)
// Sunset Sangria (Moscato)
// White Sangria With Mangos and Berries (Choose Your Own)
// Easy Tropical Sangria (Sweeter Wine)
// Fruity Moscato Sangria (Moscato)
// White Peach Sangria (Riesling, Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc)
Rose Sangria Recipes
I’m not going to lie, I’ve tried Red wine Sangria, and I’ve tried white wine Sangria. I have yet to actually try a rose wine Sangria. I have come to find that there are a number of sangria recipes out there that are built off of Rose wine. They all look delicious and might need to be tested out soon in our kitchen.
Red Wine Sangria Recipes
If you are looking to serve multiple types of Sangria or encourage your friends to try red wine, there are a number of red wine Sangria recipes out there too. I’ve tried a few over the years and while it typically isn’t my favorite I rarely will turn down a chance to taste test.
// The Best Sangria Recipe (Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot)
// Basic Sangria Recipe (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Rioja reds, Zinfandel, Shiraz)
// Easy Traditional Red Sangria (Dry Spanish Red Wine)
// Classic Lusty Red Sangria (Rioja Reds, Malbec, Merlot or Shiraz)
If all else fails, coupons.com has a great Sangria build your own adventure tutorial.
Does your cookout involve more kids than adults? Kraft has a Sangria Punch that does not contain any alcohol so kids can enjoy it too.
I can’t decide which of these Sangria recipes sounds the best? Maybe we need to do some research this summer and try them all.
