Sweet moscato sangria is livened up with the addition of fresh cantaloupe, tangy raspberries, and refreshing mint leaves.
Thirsty Thursday is in FULL swing today, I tell ya what….
I really can’t make it through summer without making a pitcher or 10 of moscato sangria. Or what I affectionately call drunk fruit salad. ??
This sipper is really off the flavor charts, friends. We’ve got cantaloupe, raspberries, fresh mint, AND citrus. Plus a whole bottle of sweet moscato wine, obv.
It’s pretty glasses like that beauty up there that really make these precious summer weekends, y’all.
That and a good bunch of buddies to share this gorgeous pitcher with. Prepare to quickly snag the favorite friend status in your group.
Plus you get a salad out of this deal! There IS green stuff and fruit present here, just roll with it please. ??
Let’s walk through making this moscato sangria! >>
First up is fruit. The building blocks to any good sangria. We’re going to be using cantaloupe, (either cubed or melon balled) fresh raspberries, and sliced orange.
If you don’t have any of these fruits on hand, you can totally swap out for other fruits! That’s the beauty of sangria, it’s very interchangeable and adaptable.
Strawberries, mango, watermelon, blueberries, etc. would all work beautifully here if you need other fruit options.
The mint in this sangria is one thing you definitely cannot leave out. It adds such a punchy, fresh herby flavor that is BOMB with the sweet moscato and fruit.
Let’s talk booze. You’re gonna need a full 750 ml bottle of sweet moscato wine for this sangria, plus a few “glugs” of triple sec for an extra punch of citrus flavor.
Plan ahead because this sangria needs to sit in the fridge for at least 1 hour so the alcohol can soak into the fruit and all the flavors blend together.
This sangria can absolutely be made hours in advance, however, I do recommend you drink it the day it’s made. Otherwise the fruit gets soggy and starts to tastes a little too “winey” for most people’s taste. ?
Now that is one pretty as heck summer sipper. ^^
It literally tastes like a DREAM too. Sweet and citrus-y with the perfect little punch of mint flavor. Summah’ in a glass.
It goes down WAY too easy, let me tell ya. Make sure you have a bunch of friends around to help you drink this pitcher, guys. ?
