Red, White, and Blue Sangria

Hey Friends! I hope your week is off the a great start! Ben and I are off on a litle getaway! Make sure  you follow me on Instagram to follow along!

With my whole dishwasher/floor issue, (are y'all tried of hearing about it?) I haven't decorated for the 4th of July....I just keep waiting for dishwasher parts and insurance people!! I feel like if I add more decor I am just going to have to move it when they replace my floors whenever that may be. 

However, last year, I shared an AMAZING red, white, and blue sangria so today I thought I would share it AGAIN because trust me...you need to make it ASAP!! 

Here is my post from last June...

I love anything red, white, and blue. Don't you? I love sangria. Ben's aunt makes an amazing sangria that we drink just about anytime we are all together. So I thought I would "tweak" her recipe and make it red, white, and blue for our upcoming 4th of July party! 

You can find my super cute red, white, and blue wine glasses here


Ingredients:

1 bottle of white wine. I used Reisling 
1/2 cup of Splenda
1 cup of lemonade
1 lemon
1 lime
1 cup of vodka. I used Tito's
1 bottle of diet 7up or Sprite Zero
strawberries
blueberries
Granny Smith Apples

Fun American Flag straws! I picked mine up at Target. 

Directions:

Pour wine and vodka in a pitcher
squeeze the juice from the lemon and lime into the pitcher
slice your strawberries and add about a handful of those and blueberries into the pitcher. I made my apples into stars. (I'll show you that part below)
Add Splenda and stir well. 

Tips: 

To squeeze the juice from the lemon and lime, I use my citrus press from Pampered Chef. Makes life so much easier. 


To cut my apples into stars, I used these mini cutters.  I peeled my apples, then sliced. 



I make this sangria either the night before or the morning of that I need it. The longer it "sits" the yummier it taste! 
So fun and So festive! This amount will make about 1.5 quarts. For our upcoming party, I will double this recipe....heck, who I am kidding I will probably triple it!!!!
