I’m just going to say it. F**k this weather! However, making the best out of bad situations is my specialty. So, drumroll please…the Berry Sangria Spritzer was born from this heinous heat and humidity. No combination of super-powered air conditioning, ceiling fans, and garden hoses can match the cooling powers of this refreshing berry drink!
Handfuls of blackberries and sliced strawberries, some sparkling juice, and red wine make this the perfect drink to whip up for a summer barbecue or girls night. The bubbly fruit juice balances out the red wine, so this is great for people (like myself) who haven’t quite developed a taste for straight red table wine. Simple yet elegant, this yummy fruity beverage will help you cool off (as well as take the edge off) these oh-so sticky summer months.
Berry Sangria Spritzer

1 bottle red wine
1 bottle sparkling juice (i used sparkling berry lemonade)
1 generous handful sliced strawberries
1 generous handful blackberries

1. Combine all ingredients into a big jar or pitcher. Give mixture a few rigorous stirs (to break up the berries a bit), chill for an hour, and enjoy (preferably on a warm summer night with your closest friends)!
