Summer is approaching, and we’re spending most of our days outside. One of my favorite drinks to have on a hot day is sangria. The problem is that I don’t drink it often, and nobody else drinks it. That means a big pitcher goes to waste. I wanted to find my perfect sangria that I could make a glass at a time. Thats how I created this single serving sparkling sangria recipe. The addition of seltzer makes this sangria even better, because it keeps it light enough if I want more than one.
Single Serving Sparkling Sangria
This recipe is insanely easy. I started by adding a handful of frozen berries to the bottom of my glass. You can use fresh berries as well, but I had frozen berries. Plus, it keeps my drink even cooler in this Vegas heat.
I add 1 cup of red moscato to my glass. I use red moscato, but you can use whatever wine you prefer. My advice is that if you don’t use a sweet wine that you add a sweetener later on.
I added two tablespoons of white rum into the red wine. Usually you would use brandy, but I don’t like brandy nor do I own it. You can always use brandy if you prefer.
Finally, I topped it off with some ice and seltzer. I used strawberry seltzer, but feel free to use whatever you like.
I stirred it all together, and added a lime for garnish. Honestly, I can’t lie it was delicious. I love how easy it is, and that I can adjust the ingredient amounts based off of how I’m feeling at the moment.
