Iced Tea Berry Sangria
In the summer, when the days are hot and fresh berries are plentiful, there’s no better beverage than a thirst-quenching glass of Iced Tea Berry Sangria.
Servings 12 servings (1 cup each)
- 2 quarts Sweetened iced tea chilled (see note 1)
- 1 (750 mL) bottle Red Moscato or other sweet red wine, chilled (see note 2)
- 2 cups berry juice chilled
- 1/2 cup brandy (see note 3)
- 2 pounds strawberries (hulled and sliced), blackberries, blueberries, and/or raspberries
In a large pitcher, combine tea, wine, juice, and brandy. Chill until serving time.
Serve over ice with the berries (add berries to the pitcher of sangria, to individual glasses, or serve it in bowls on the side so guests can help themselves).
- Iced tea: Sweet tea tastes the best here. To cut down on sugar, use unsweetened iced tea and add your preferred sweetener (Splenda, stevia, etc.) after mixing everything else together.
- Moscato: Any sweet red wine will work here (Lambrusco or Malbec are both good choices).
- Brandy: Or substitute whiskey, dark rum, or bourbon (the flavor will change). To substitute brandy extract, use 5 teaspoons brandy extract and 1/2 cup water in place of the brandy.
