Why I love this moscato sangria recipe
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.
Here’s what you’ll need to make it
How to make moscato sangria
For a single pitcher:
Combine the 1 bottle of wine, 1/2 cup strawberry-flavored vodka, 2 cups soda and fresh strawberries.
If you don’t want strawberry vodka, you can substitute any flavor or plain vodka instead.
Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve in glasses filled with ice.
For a large batch:
In a large drink dispenser, combine 4 bottles of wine, 2 cups flavored vodka, 8 cups (or 1 2-liter bottle) of soda and 1 pint of sliced strawberries.
You can also substitute 1 bag of frozen sliced strawberries.
Chill for at least 1 hour. Serve in glasses filled with ice. I like to also put out an extra bowl of sliced strawberries for garnish since they normally can’t come out of drink dispensers.
FAQs and tips for making the best moscato sangria
This moscato sangria is a bit sweeter than traditional sangria, making it more like a punch recipe.
Yes. It’s a sweet Italian wine made from grapes. It can be made with white or red grapes, but it’s generally made into a white or pink wine.
Sweet wines tend to have a higher sugar content than dry wines, but that doesn’t mean sugar has been added to them.
