Cherry Sangria Recipe

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.

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.

As with any yummy treat, getting the kids involved in making them is a great idea.  I love using an assembly line in the kitchen.  Just pass out all of the aprons, set up different stations on the table, and let kids and family get involved to help put together a favorite dessert.
