Prosecco Sangria Tips

  • Berry Magic: Letting them sit with sugar sweetens the drink and extracts the rich, fruity flavors, making the sangria taste richer.
  • Chill Out: It’s crucial to refrigerate the mixture for 2-4 hours after adding the vodka.
  • Last Minute Fizz: Add the club soda and Prosecco right before serving. This ensures that the drink retains its fizz and stays lively.
  • Flavor Variations: Don’t hesitate to experiment. Though raspberry Stoli vodka is a favorite, trying other fruit-flavored vodkas can bring in a fresh twist. Try lemon or peach!
  • Batch Cocktails: This easy sangria recipe is perfect for making in large batches. Prepare a pitcher of sangria for your next summer barbecue or girls’ night.
  • Fresh Fruit: Adding a mix of fresh strawberries, blueberries, and fresh peaches not only enhances the flavor but also gives the sangria a beautiful presentation.
  • Sugar Dissolve: Make sure to let the berries sit with the sugar until the sugar dissolves completely, releasing all the natural juices and sweetness into the sangria.

    Did not like the suggested raspberry vodka in this drink! We found this sangria itself to be a bit bland. I followed the directions exactly.
