Moscato Sangria Is Perfect For Summer Afternoons

This sounds delicious!

Spring has officially sprung, and if you’re looking for a fun and fresh cocktail that’s perfect for the season, look no further than this yummy White Sangria from Amanda’s Cookin’.

Ideal for the warmer months, this fruity sangria features Moscato wine, orange liqueur, club soda and plenty of fresh fruit. This fizzy concoction is sure to add a touch of flair to any occasion, even if it’s only you kicking back solo on your patio or deck.

In lieu of Moscato, you could also substitute in any sweet white wine, such as riesling or white zinfandel. If a drier profile is more your style, try a less-sweet white varietal like chardonnay or pinot grigio. There is no wrong way to customize sangria!

In fact, you don’t even need to limit your sangria to white wines. Try out a pink or red Moscato for a twist. Be sure to allow plenty of time for all the flavors to meld together, as blogger Amanda suggests.

Not only is sangria delicious, but it looks pretty, too!

Of course, your sangria options are limitless. If you’re looking to change it up as nicer weather arrives, feel free to try a pineapple rum version or a cucumber-melon white sangria. Or even combine it with margarita flavors to create a tasty “sangarita” hybrid.

Don’t want to put in the work and time to pick out all the sangria ingredients separately? Try a sangria kit, like the one Aldi introduced in June 2019 as a seasonal product for just $3.49 each. While we certainly hope these will be available in 2020 as well, other sangria shortcuts exist.

Try, for example, the InBooze Alcohol Infusion Kit on Etsy, which features dehydrated fruits, vegetables, herbs, and spices to turn your wine (not included) into 8-10 perfect seasonal cocktails for $12.75.

Yum!
