Summer Sangria Punch -Cold and Icy

Nothing hits the spot like an icy cold glass of summer sangria punch using red or white wine, white or red grape juice, and fresh chopped up fruit. I'll be making a pitcher or two for our July 4th celebration. 
It is gluten free and vegan too!

Sangria, a drink that originated in Spain and Portugal, is easy to make and is cold and refreshing. You can be as creative as you like with the ingredients for making your personal sangria punch.

Much lighter than straight wine, I've enjoyed sangria made in a variety of ways, with a variety of fruits, a variety of juices, brandy, or other liquors. 

If you don't drink alcohol, just leave out the wine and use a red or white grape juice instead.

My Basic Sangria Punch
Start with a bottle of red wine, add fresh juicy berries, cut up apple, and  some citrus fruits of your choice, some bubbly (seltzer or Prosecco), a little orange juice, and chill until nice and cold. Pour over crushed ice or small ice cubes and serve with a large sprig of fresh mint.

Makes a nice pitcher of punch!

Whether you choose to make your Sangria using white wine or red wine, it's the perfect fruity drink for hot summer nights.

Pair your sangria with some salty, smoky, or spicy appetizers such as olives, spinach dip, or hummus and (GF) crackers or any kind of tapas!

  15. This looks amazingly delicious. I recently received a bottle of red wine that is a bit on the sweet side, and not one that I am inclined to drink on its own. It would, however, make an excellent sangria. Thanks for the reminder. I haven’t had sangria in ages and I’m overdue.

  16. I've encountered sangria that had some liqueur or other alcohol boost along with the wine, but this sounds good and refreshing. Perfect for the heat.
    Looks like you have a couple of spammers in the comments here. They are really becoming annoying.
