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
    • Ice


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.
