Salute and Sangria…

Rose SangriaHappy Friday! I couldn’t be more excited for the holiday weekend and look forward to honoring those who have fought for our freedom. We will be spending time with those close to us and being thankful for all that we have. Food and drinks are always a part of this tradition and this weekend will be no different. I’m looking forward to making my favorite sangria recipe as it’s perfect to sip on warm sunny days. I discovered this Martha Stewart recipe over ten years ago and still love it, so does my hubby! Of course you can make different variations with the fruit and wine selections but the key is really soaking the fruit in Framboise. Trust me, it’s amazing. Here is the recipe for the best sangria ever 

Combine 2 cups each blueberries, blackberries, hulled strawberries, & raspberries. Mix in 1 tbsp of sugar. Pour in 5 ounces of Framboise (or other raspberry liqueur) and let sit for at least 1 hour. Gently stir in bottle of chilled rose wine and 1 1/3 cups white cranberry juice. Serve chilled and enjoy!
