This recipe isn't only delicious and perfect for a hot summer day, but the finished product is also so darn cute and sweet looking! Cheers!

INGREDIENTS:
SANGRIA
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup halved strawberries1 cup fresh or frozen blackberries
  • 1 (750 ml) bottle chilled Pink Moscato 
  • 1 recipe raspberry simple syrup (recipe below)
  • 1/2 cup red berry or raspberry vodka1 cup lemon-lime soda

RASPBERRY SIMPLE SYRUP
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water


DIRECTIONS:
SANGRIA
  1. Add fruit to the bottom of a large pitcher. Top with chilled Moscato, raspberry simple syrup, and vodka. Stir to combine. Place the pitcher in the refrigerator for at least an hour to chill.
  2. Before serving, stir in lemon-lime soda.

RASPBERRY SIMPLE SYRUP
  1. In a small pot, add raspberries, sugar, and water. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar dissolves. Take the mixture off the heat and allow it to come to room-temperature. Strain the mixture through a mesh sieve. If you're not going to use the mixture right away, store in an airtight container and place in the refrigerator until ready to use. The mixture can be made 3 days ahead.
