1. Sparkling Sangria in Red, White and Blue

Sangria is one of the most well-loved drinks in the entire world. There are so many sangria flavors, so there is a variation for any season, occasion, and meal.

It’s a total win-win!

  • 1 bottle of sparkling wine (prosecco or champagne)
  • 1 cup of blueberries
