Simple Strawberry Sangria
Today I am talking all about how to make a Simple Strawberry Sangria for the summer.
To make a Simple Strawberry Sangria or Frose’ first things first you want to start with fresh strawberries. Now I have been know to go strawberry picking during the strawberry season, Washington Farms is one my favorite places to get farm fresh berries. This year it was $12 per bucket plus tax for strawberries, blackberries or blueberries.

If you are not so inclined to pick your own you can purchase pre pack Strawberries for $15 a bucket plus tax. Your choice, no judgement here. I went strawberry picking with a few of my friends and we were sad to hear that news that Washington Farms would be closing the Loganville location after this year. So this would be our last time of this adventure being a yearly trek for us, but we still love the tradition so it is off the Watkinsville we go next year!Once you have your strawberries you want to wash them and slice them up. Once you have sliced them coat them lightly with sugar and refrigerate. This is also the way I make strawberries for my strawberry shortcake, strawberry rhubarb pie, and strawberry ice-cream topping. So if get a whole bunch and process them all at one time you can have countless options. As a less sweet option I also have a recipe for a Strawberry Goat Cheese Salad that is simply to die for so you must check it out if you are a strawberry fan. After a couple of hours in the refrigerator the berries will make there own juice, from the sugar coating. Sugar naturally pulls the juice out of the berries and turns it into a simple syrup. This is the mixture I either stir into my lemonade or in this case I spooned it out into individual glasses to make it pretty.
Next step you want to mix a sweet fruity bubbly white wine, like a Moscato, Prosecco or even a Rose’ to a fresh squeezed lemonade. I like Simply Lemonade for flavor purposes, in this case I use the Strawberry Lemonade. Pour mixture over the strawberries, and garnish with mint. Voila, an easy peasy cocktail.*For a more slushie drink add in 1 -2 cups frozen strawberries (or crushed ice but this will water down your drink a bit) to your blender with the same mix and pulse for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
A great designer tip if you want to get really fancy you can sugar rim the edge of glass. This can be done by dipping glass rim upside down into a shallow bowl of water then placing on a plate of sugar, in twisting circular motion to get a good coating.
If you love Strawberries like we do be sure to see our Easter edition too of Bunnies in The Berry Patch so many cute ideas for the strawberry lover. Along with our Strawberry Shortcake Mocktails which are such a fun holiday treat.
THE GROCERY LIST:
- 1-2 Pints Strawberries
- 1/4 Cup Sugar
- 1 Bottle Sweet White Wine (Moscato, Prosecco or Rose’)
- 1 Bottle Simple Lemonade (or Strawberry Lemonade)

Doctors also like alcohol in moderation, and I think it is great that your are adding fresh fruits instead of a pre-made mix. Great way to cut out some of the sugars.
