Sweet Berry Sangria
What wine lover doesn’t enjoy sipping sangria on a hot summer night? It is always refreshing, and versatile as it is easy to change to suit your personal tastes with the fruit added to it. Although you can buy it premade at the store, that type is often loaded with refined sugars so I prefer to make my own. My favorite type to make is combining rose wine with berries. I make it with a little citrus in the form of orange, sweet cherry juice, berry puree to sweeten in place of the usual sugar. I think it is plenty sweet as is that way since the fruit is so sweet but if you wanted it a little more so you can add a bit of honey or another liquid sweetener to your batch.
