This is a sangria recipe that I came up with recently when I was kicking back with some friends.  It was perfect for a hot summer day!  It’s nice and refreshing without being too sweet.  And it even got the attention of some of our non wine drinking guests!

This is also a really easy recipe to make.  The last time I had guests coming, I made a batch in about twenty minutes the night before and it was perfect and ready for the next day.

I use a straw to quickly hull my washed strawberries.


  • 3/4 a pound of strawberries hulled and sliced
  • 3 medium navel oranges sliced (ends sliced off and discarded)
  • 1/2 cup citrus rum
  • 2 oz orange liquor
  • 3/4 a 1.5L bottle of Moscoto I use Barefoot brand
  • {or better yet, buy three 750 ml bottles and make two batches!}
  • lemon-lime soda diet or regular

  1. Mix the wine, rum, and orange liquor. Add the strawberries and oranges. Top with a little more wine to make sure the fruit is all covered with liquid. Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Pour through a strainer into glasses (though you probably won't care about the pulp once you get to the second pitcher), and add fruit. Top with soda. Enjoy!!
