Try Our Summer Sparkling Strawberry Sangria

Summer Sparkling Strawberry Sangria. You can use either red or white wine as the base for Sangria but to our taste here at Wines Of The World, white Sangria is the way to go.

It's smoother than the red kind and it looks more elegant. It goes easy but packs a real punch (no pun intended). You want your sangria to be well chilled when it's served but
instead of diluting all the amazing flavors in the punch bowl with a bunch of
melting ice, just put out a bucket of ice so people can fill their glasses with
ice before serving themselves.

  1. To prepare syrup, in a large saucepan combine trimmed and halved strawberries, sugar, and water. Bring just to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat. Cover; cool to room temperature.
