I don’t know about your part of the world… but it is HOT here in SoCal.

Spring has already passed us by and we are well into summer. It’s steamy during the day, but once the sun goes down, it’s pleasantly cool.

I love to kick back on the patio and enjoy a glass of this sweet and fruity Berry-licious Iced Tea Red Sangria, my new favorite summer drink.

I’m a life-long, die-hard iced tea lover.

Gallons of sun-made iced tea fill my childhood memories. In my early 20’s, I loved sipping cocktails made with iced tea. These days, I’m craving my favorite drink, sangria, made with iced tea too.

Making a version of sangria based on iced tea was part destiny. Part destiny, part super berry-liciousness. I love how easy this recipe is too. Simply combine iced tea, sweet red wine, and berry juice. Chill it in the refrigerator to blend the flavors, then pour over lots of fresh berries and serve. It’s sweet, delicious, fruity, and refreshing.

Summer in a glass? Definitely.

  1. You and your sangria recipes are going to make me an alcoholic :)  Looks lovely!

  2. Wow, now that’s what I call Summer in a glass. You could also freeze the berries first to keep the drink nice and cold.

    • Best idea ever, Janette. You’re hired. ;) But seriously, freezing the berries (or even using some frozen ones like blueberries) is just plain common sense. Thank you for sharing your tips! You clearly know your way around a cocktail.

  3. This is perfect weather for Iced tea and I LOVE the addition of wine and berries! Can’t wait to have this as soon as the weather warms up for a BBQ!! :D 

    • Thank you, Dini! It’s already hot here in SoCal, 90’s or 100’s every day! This iced tea sangria is the best way to wind down once the sun sets. :)

  4. I love iced tea too, but I never thought to add berries or other fruits to it – what a great idea! And lovely photos too :)

    • Thank you, Kathleen! I too never thought to add berries until now, but other people make and sell raspberry iced tea or whatever (hello SNAPPLE!) so why not make this? I hope your packing is going well!!

  5. What a stunning glass of boozy refreshment! So simple and so fun to sip!

  6. What kind of berry juice?

    • Hi Crystal, I tested this recipe with several varieties that I found at the grocery store. My favorite was the Simply Mixed Berry juice blend, although any “berry juice” would work. I think Tropicana, Welch’s, and others have options. I hope this helps! Thank you!

  7. The image looks so yummy, although I would like o make it a non-alcohol drink. How would you do that?

    • Hi Cecilia! You could substitute more berry juice for the wine, or try using grape juice. I haven’t tried either of these so I don’t know exactly how it would taste, but I feel like there is no possible way it could be bad. I guess I would just start mixing iced tea and juice and see what you like! Thanks for the question, I’ll definitely have to experiment and get a NA substitute.

  8. Do you use unsweetened or sweetened iced tea? 

    • Hi Jennifer, I used the sweetened (sorry this wasn’t listed out, I will add it). I tested it with both kinds, but when it comes to sugar, more is more. The sweetened kind tasted best to me. Having said that, using unsweetened was still good, so if sugar is a concern for you, it still tastes good with the unsweetened. Thanks for your question.

    • Thanks! Being Canadian, I find that making iced tea (sweetened or unsweetened) isn’t super common. I am planning on making this recipe for tomorrow – a 30th and 3rd tea party birthday party for me and my daughter! Bought some Lipton summer fruits tea and will try to make some sweetened ice tea now for the recipe.

    • That totally makes sense. Feel free to sweeten the tea to your taste. I feel like many Americans are addicted to sugar, not sure if Canadians are the same. So what tastes good to me might make you shudder. ;) Happy Birthday to you and your daughter! Wish I was turning 30…
