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.
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.
