I love a refreshing a drink especially when that can be served on a budget! I often host coffee mornings at my house and a couple of my favorite drinks to serve are a Caramel Macchiato. and a Copycat Starbucks Lime Refresher. Whether I’m hosting in the morning or afternoon those two drinks work wonders, but when I want to host at night I look to a good cocktail while entertaining friends. That is when I make this fun specialty Cherry Sangria recipe.
Cherry Sangria Recipe
Using simple ingredients, my Cherry Sangria recipe is light and refreshing. The flavors come together nicely. I love that it is inexpensive to make and I can make large batches or smaller ones. This will easily become your go-to cocktail for getting together with your friends.
During the summer months I will do my best to make this Cherry Sangria recipe with fresh cherries but frozen cherries will work as well. During the summer months I freeze fruit in large quantities when they go on sale and that gives me frozen cherries to make this cherry sangria recipe during the winter months as well. Frozen cherries do tend to give off more juice and bring out the cherry taste even more.

What makes this Cherry Sangria so good? It is easy to make and can be made even on short notice. I can make it a head of time if I know we will be having guests, or if friends show up spur of the moment for a game night or for girls night, I can make it with ingredients that are easy to keep on hand.
