Yesterday was my twin sister’s baby shower, and we celebrated the sweet little baby girl that we are going to get to meet in just a few short weeks. I literally can’t wait to meet my new niece. She’s going to be so cute and little and snuggly, and it was so great getting to see family and friends (one of the best things about being a twin is that you get to have all the same friends). This baby is going to be one lucky girl with some many great people in her life.
Obviously, we had amazing food – roasted tomato pasta salad, pulled pork, tasty dips, and some unbelievably good cheesecake topped with strawberries. But, we had to have some pink drinks. So I made this really easy pink strawberry sangria.
It’s made with only 4 ingredients, and one of them is strawberries. That’s how easy it is. It’s perfect for the coming summer and strawberry season. For the shower, I made 5 batches to put into a drink dispenser, but the recipe below is one single recipe. It makes enough for about 6 people. You could also easily substitute the moscato wine for any crisp or fruity wine, but we just had to have something sweet and pink to celebrate the sweet baby girl on the way.
Pink Strawberry Sangria
- 1 75-ml bottle pink moscato wine
- 1/2 cup strawberry flavored vodka
- 2 cups lemon-lime soda
- 6 - 10 large strawberries, sliced
- In a large pitcher, combine the wine and vodka. Add strawberries and refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Just before serving, add the lemon-lime soda.
- Serve over ice.
