Pour into glasses and serve to your party group. Your group will surely be impressed by this fun drink. Wonder what type of glass to serve this punch in? This punch is best served in whiskey glasses. However, any cup will suffice.


Cocktails for Summer

If you’re having an outdoor party or BBQ in the summer, your party won’t be complete with a summer-inspired cocktail. Luckily, making a Party Sangria is one of the most accessible drinks to whip up with minimal effort. Although Sangria is a commonly found drink at summer parties, your Party Sangria takes this drink to a new level. With added alcohol besides wine, your guests will experience a buzz in no time.

With only 5-minutes of prep time, you’ll impress your guests without having to stress. Here’s what you’ll need to whip up a Party Sangria mix:

  • 1 Bottle of Red Wine (any type will do, usually less dry wine is best for sangria)
  • 1 Lemon, Cut into Wedges
  • 1 Orange, Cut into Wedges
  • 1 Lime, Cut into Wedges
  • 1 8 oz. Can of Diced Pineapple with Juice
  • 2 TBSP Sugar (Granulated)
  • Splash of Orange Juice or Lemonade
  • 4 Cups Ginger Ale (or Diet Ginger Ale)
  • 1 Cup of Strawberries or Raspberries


Steps to Make Party Sangria:

  1. Start by pouring the entire bottle of red wine into a large pitcher or bowl.
  2. Squeeze the juice of lemon, orange, and lime into the wine.
  3. Add in wedges of fruit, pineapple, sugar, and orange juice. If you’re looking to give your Party Sangria an extra kick, you can also add a bit of extra alcohol to this step. Triple-sec, schnapps, or gin pairs nicely with Party Sangria.
  4. Chill the entire mixture in the fridge overnight.
  5. The next day, add ginger ale, berries, and ice to the chilled Sangria mixture.
