Patriotic Sangria

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and shouldn’t wine lovers have a patriotic way to drink, I mean celebrate? After searching the web and looking for the tastiest wine concoction I found a “Red, White and Blue Sangria” from recipegirl.com that will make wine lovers rejoice.
 
For the Sangria (yields 8 to 10 servings):
2 bottles                                 Dry White Wine (Sauvignon Blanc suggested)
1 cup                                     Triple Sec
½ cup                                    Berry-Flavored Vodka
½ cup                                    Simple Syrup
1 cup                                     Blueberries
1 ½ cup                                 Strawberries, Sliced and Hulled
1 cup                                     Raspberries
1 ½ cup                                 Pineapple Chunks
 
Method:
Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitchers and stir well.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
Serve well-chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or serve over ice.
 
Tips:
  • To make the ½ cup of simple syrup, boil ½ cup of water and add ½ cup granulated white sugar. Turn the heat to a simmer and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat and let it cool. You now have simple syrup.
  • Use fresh fruit in the recipe. Frozen is no good.  
  • To make star-shaped pineapple pieces, cut long and wide pieces of pineapple off the side of the fresh fruit and use a star cutter to cut the shapes.
 
Now you are ready to celebrate the 4th with a patriotic drink that will have the crowd envious, unless you share.
