Sangria is totally the drink of summer. There is nothing quite like a cool glass of wine, fruit and spirits at the end of a long, summer day. In winter, I usually make a red wine sangria but, for summer, I prefer a mixed berry Prosecco sangria.
What is Sangria?
Sangria is an alcoholic punch that is usually made with red wine, fruit, and brandy. Although not traditional, white wine, rose wine and even sparkling wine sangria have become popular in recent years.
This mixed berry sangria features prosecco to add the perfect effervescence to the drink. Prosecco, a white sparkling wine from Italy, has long been considered a more affordable alternative to Champagne making it a perfect everyday sparkling wine and perfect for using in this mixed berry Prosecco sangria.
I use a mix of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries for this recipe. You can easily mix up the berries though and include strawberries too.
This mixed berry Prosecco sangria is so perfect for summer! It is cool, refreshing and filled with flavors of apple and pear from the Prosecco. I always keep extra berries on hand too to garnish the glasses for a fun touch.
