Raspberry-Lemon Blush Sangria Spritzers

It is officially Sangria season!

After suffering through the past four days of atrocious weather here in Portland (hail storms in June, really!?), the sun has come out and I am ready for the porch-sitting, sangria-sipping days of summer.

Raspberry-Lemon Blush Sangria Spritzers!

Yes, yes, I know. Summer in the Northwest doesn’t really start until after the fourth of July, but just let me enjoy my fleeting moment in the sun with a tall glass of this Raspberry-Lemonade inspired Sangria.

Isn’t it pretty? When I made this I was in a really girly mood. I’m not usually a “pink” type of gal, so I surprised myself by making what I thought was a highly feminine drink.

I was proven wrong when I took a batch of this over to a dinner party and it was swiftly consumed by the husband and his manly friends.

Our amazing friends Jason & Michele just bought a new house AND had a new baby, yet somehow had the energy to host a group of us over for dinner.

There was a moment when I looked around and realized that most of the ladies were drinking beer and most of the men were drinking pink Sangria Spritzers. We have awesome friends.

I love making Sangria for parties and groups because it is so easy to make in a bulk batch. It can be overwhelming to make and shake individual cocktails for a party, but put out a pre-made pitcher of Sangria and the hard work is already done!

If you like my pretty glass pitcher, here’s the link to see it on Amazon.

    The colour of this just looks soooo delicious! I love pink drinks and also have a place in my heart for sangria, so this is pretty much my ultimate summer beverage. Yum!

    How can you not love a beautiful summer cocktail, especially one so simple. I’m a huge fan of combining sweet fruit with tart citrus. Looks lovely–wish I could have a glass right now.
