Summer is here and what a great way to cool off on the beach, boat or at the pool. Try my Lawson Roberts Famous Red White and Blue Sangria. It’s so easy to make big batches and serve all holiday weekend. Here’s the fun recipe.
Red White and Blue Sangria
2 bottles dry white wine (Sauvignon Blanc is good)
1 cup triple sec
1/2 cup berry-flavored vodka
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/2 cup simple syrup (see tips below)
1 cup blueberries
1 1/2 cups hulled and sliced strawberries
1 cup raspberries
1 1/2 cups pineapple chunks
Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir well.
Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours.
Serve well-chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or serve over ice.
Lawson’s Helpful Hints:
*To make 1/2 cup simple syrup, boil 1/2 cup water and add 1/2 cup granulated white sugar. Turn heat to simmer and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat and let cool. Now it’s simple syrup.
*Use fresh fruit for this recipe. Frozen Just doesn’t have the flavor.
*To make star-shaped pineapple pieces, cut long & wide pieces of pineapple off the side of the fresh fruit. Use a star cutter to cut shapes.
