The Fourth of July is the perfect time to break out your pitcher and serve up chilled red, white and blue sangria. Make it sparkling and in minutes you’ve got a fabulous holiday cocktail. Big batches are always ideal for a crowd, and this patriotic pour is just the right sip for summer. All you need is a few fresh strawberries and sweet blueberries, along with the spritz of bubbly wine and you’re in for a firework-worthy toast.
- 1 cup blueberries
- ¾ cup sliced strawberries
- ¾ cup peach brandy
- 3 cups berry flavored club seltzer, chilled
- 1 bottle of sparkling wine, chilled
In a large pitcher, combine the berries and the brandy and lightly muddle. Add the seltzer water and the sparkling wine and fill with ice.
