Y’all, I’m going to be honest: this might be my favorite summer drink. It’s light and refreshing, perfect for a hot day! It’s fruity and sweet but not too syrupy, so you don’t get tired of it after one sip. Best of all, it’s so easy to make!

Doesn’t it just scream at you to put down that to do list and sit outside with a friend of a book? It’s perfect for an afternoon on the patio or hosting a fourth of July party.

Can you get over that color? It turns coral after some time in the fridge and I LOVE it. Both the color and the berry flavor intensify with time, so I like to make it the night before.

You can use whatever berries you prefer – I went with a roughly equal mix of strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries. The strawberries add the most flavor-wise, but you should go with your gut on ratios. If you want more raspberry or blackberry flavor, cut them in half: more juice to get into the sangria!

Choose a wine that you love. I went with a Sauvignon Blanc that wasn’t too dry – the ones from New Zealand usually have some grapefruit flavor in there which works really well. If you use a sweet white, go easy on the simple syrup and taste as you go! What a chore, right? Tasting the cocktail as you go?

I say this every time, but please please please don’t waste your money on buying simple syrup – make your own! Equal parts sugar and water in a pan on low heat. When the sugar is dissolved and the liquid seems a tiny bit thicker, it’s done! I keep the stuff in my fridge for iced coffee, so there’s always some on hand.

Tools you’ll need: pitcher and wooden spoon.
