I just whipped up the ultimate grownup beverage for the 4th of July: frozen sangria. All the delicious fruitiness of your favorite sangria, all the frosty summertime buzz of a frozen margarita. You won’t believe how easy it is. And those antioxidants (from the blueberries)! That vitamin C (the strawberries)! Oh yes, this one is a keeper. I bet it would make a superb sorbet too…but that’s tomorrow’s project….

Frozen sangria with berries

  • 2 cups frozen strawberries, hulled (if you want to use fresh strawberries, clean and hull them, then stick them in the freezer in a plastic container for an hour)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 peach, cut into chunks
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 cups fruity white wine (I used a lovely Vouvray)
  • 1/4 cup triple sec

Put all ingredients in a blender and push the button. Blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
