Very Berry Summer Sangria

Seeing as 90 degree temperatures are now in our forecast and today is my baby brother's 21st birthday, it's about time for a yummy summer cocktail! My absolute favorite is sangria. My father in law swears by the boxed variety but making your own is almost too easy and the taste can't be beat! My Very Berry Summer Sangria should be on your menu for every cookout this summer.

We celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday on Sunday and when I asked what we could bring, she responded with "bring that sangria from last year - it was so good and I NEED that recipe!" so you know it's a winner.

1 bottle of sweet red wine
1 bottle of a sweet rose wine
1 pound of strawberries, chopped
1 pint of raspberries
1 golden delicious apple, peeled and chopped
the juice of an entire lime
1 cup of cranberry juice
1/4 cup of grapefruit juice
1 cup of Sprite

The instructions are as follows:
Mix all of the ingredients together in a gallon pitcher.
Yep, that's it. Mix it and you're done.
Serve chilled... NOT over ice.

P.S. Happy happy birthday to my favorite brother. Love you more than you will ever know. xoxo
