Sangria and summer are a match made in heaven! An excellent wine, a little sweetness, ripe summer fruits, and a hint of citrus are all we need for the perfect summer sipping. If you agree, then do yourself the favor of checking out 3 of our favorite sangria recipes for summer!
You may think that a white wine sangria is best for summer, but we invite you to challenge that assumption! Summer fruits like berries, cherries, and peaches go beautifully with a vibrant red wine like Cabernet Sauvignon, plus the mix of dark red fruit flavors and hints of spice make for a sangria that is complex and unforgettable! That's why we're thrilled to have partnered with J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines to bring you 3 red sangria recipes featuring their Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon! Spoiler Alert: You're going to love every. single. one of them.
Ever tried incorporating fresh herbs in your sangria? This sage-infused sangria from Red White & Denim proves that you really should! Fresh herbs like thyme, sage, or rosemary can be easily infused into simple syrup and added to sangria for extra flavor that really transforms the drink and makes it unique! In this case, sage pairs wonderfully with summer berries, orange, and pomegranate juice, and creates a sangria that feels super sophisticated.
Blueberries are some of the more underappreciated berries when it comes to sangria, but this recipe from The Forked Spoon puts them front and center! Orange and fresh mint are also added to make this sangria even brighter and more refreshing. This blueberry-centric recipe complements the black currant and cherry flavors of the J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon it features.
You might think of blood orange as a winter fruit, but its deep red color and citrusy flavor is perfect for a red summer sangria! This recipe from Fresh Mommy Blog uses blood orange soda for that unique flavor and a little effervescence; this is also great for those who love blood orange but can't find it in the summertime. Blackberries and strawberries are also added, bringing out the bright berry flavors of this J. Lohr Estates Seven Oaks Cabernet Sauvignon.
