Over the Memorial Day Weekend, I was craving Sangria. I had to work most of the weekend, but was finally able to enjoy the Memorial Day holiday on Monday.
I was feeling patriotic and grateful for all of those who served and are serving in our armed forces. I concocted a patriotic sangria that was perfect for Memorial Day, will be perfect for the 4th of July, and even something delicious to sip on during election night in November!
It was red, white, blue, and delicious! I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did!
2 cups fresh strawberries, hulled, and halved (quartered, if large)
1 cup frozen sour cherries
1 cup frozen blueberries
1 1/2 oz cognac
1 1/2 oz St. Germain liqueur
1 bottle of chilled, dry white wine, reisling or Sauvignon Blanc work well
Add fruit to a pitcher, add cognac and St Germain. Lightly muddle fruit with liqueurs. Let chill in refrigerator for one hour.
Add chilled wine to pitcher. Serve over ice if desired. Ladle some fruit into each glass!
Sip and Celebrate America, baby!
