  • 2 cups fresh blueberries
  • 2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 3-4 Granny Smith apples
  • 1 cup apple juice or white grape juice
  • 1 bottle dry white wine of choice
  • 1 bottle champagne (or any variety of sparkling white wine)

For virgin sangria, substitute white cranberry juice and sparkling pear cider (or sparkling beverage of choice) for wine and champagne.

Stars and Stripes Sangria

With apple stars and fresh berries, this drink recipe is as patriotic as it is whimsical and delicious. It can also be made sans alcohol for a fruity, kid-friendly beverage.

How to Make

1. In a large pitcher, combine the apple juice and white wine (or white cranberry juice for virgin). After washing berries, add them to pitcher. Cover and refrigerate for 1-4 hours so flavors will meld. (Note: The longer the pitcher sits, the redder it will become.)

2. Right before serving, peel apples and cut into thin slices. Using a star-shaped cookie cutter, cut out stars from the center of each apple slice. Add to pitcher.

3. Gradually stir in champagne (or sparkling cider) and ice. Serve immediately.
