Sparkling Sangria! The Perfect Long Weekend Cocktail



I’m having the girls over on Monday and when thinking of the perfect girly/beautiful cocktail that could be mostly prepared in advance Sparkling Sangria instantly came to mind.


Sangria is super easy, can be made a million different ways and usually makes everyone happy.  I chose a sparkling version to switch things up and snazz it up a bit, but you can make it with regular wine and it’s just as delicious.

Here’s How!

Sparkling Sangria:


  • 1 bottle of champagne or sparkling wine
  • 1/2 cup of peach or pear vodka
  • 1/3 cup of lime juice
  • 1/3 cup of simple syrup
  • 1 cup of diced strawberries
  • 2 cups of whatever other fruit you’re into – I chose blueberries and cherries because they were on sale – hu-rah!)
  • 1 can of sparkling lemonade –  optional








How To:

  • chop up your fruits and put them in a pitcher
  • add vodka, lime juice, simple syrup, mix and let chill together until you’re just about to serve
  • when you’re guests are ready for their cocktails, sugar the rim of the glass and pour the champers into the pitcher with the fruit
  • spoon a little bit of the fruit into the sugar rimmed glasses and then pour the sparkling sangria on top
  • yum!



Have a great long weekend!
