Happy Friday, guys! Kicking off the weekend by sharing this delicious new drink recipe. 

Y’all know I have been loving sharing fun cocktails…from my Raspberry Bourbon Smash, to my Spicy Grapefruit Margarita, there is just something about being able to sip on an ice cold refreshing drink in the Summer heat, right?! Right! 

Why You’ll Love this Drink: 

First off, this drink recipe is SO easy! It’s not something that requires a ton of ingredients or effort which is something that I am always looking for in the Summer. 

I mean, hello! It’s too hot to be dealing with all the things in the kitchen, right?! I want something easy! 

For this recipe I use fresh strawberries which add allll of the natural sweetness! You blend up a quick strawberry puree and try not to drink it straight from the blender. 

The strawberries are SO sweet and I love the stark contrast of the tart lemonade with it.

If you’re interested in making a mocktail, you can stop right there! Hello strawberry lemonade! 

But if you want to jazz it up a little bit extra, add a generous splash of pinot grigio! I love pinot grigio in this sangria because it’s not overly sweet, has fruity undertones and is SO refreshing!

Mixed all together, it’s sweet, refreshing, perfectly chilled and fruity deliciousness! 

So let’s get into what you need to make it! 

Ingredients You Need:

  • Fresh strawberries
  • Lemonade (storebought or homemade) 
  • Pinot Grigio 
  • Fresh Lemon 
  • Water 

Tips on Making the Best Sangria: 

For this drink, I love using a stemless wine glass. I think you’re able to fit the most fresh fruit and drink in general within the wine glass. 

Start by blending up the strawberries with some water. You can definitely add sugar to this mixture if you’d like it more sweet.

After that, strain it with a sieve into a jar. 

That’s the most work you will have to do! Woohoo. 

From there, it’s ultra simple. Add the strawberry puree, the lemonade and white wine. Mix mix mix and then taste and adjust flavor to your liking. 

Want it sweeter? Add more puree! Want it more tart? Add more lemonade? Want it more boozy? Add more wine!

It’s pretty simple! 

For looks, I love to add fresh lemon slices and strawberry slices. It makes it so pretty!

And that’s it – drink up and enjoy! 

Drink Substitutions/Additions: 

You can use blueberries or raspberries in this drink if you’d like, I just think strawberries are the BEST in this! 

You can also use any white wine you like – I think any dry, less sweet white wine is the best! 

For extra sweetness, you could always coat the rim of the glass in sugar!
If you want a little bubbly, feel free to add some champagne on top at the end!
