Summertime Sangria Recipe by Sarah Yates | west elm

Sangria should taste like a pitcher of mediterranean sunshine. But far too often, it’s more like someone mixed a liter of sugary soda with some cheap red wine.

But this summertime sangria recipe from Sarah Yates of A House In The Hills is a keeper – crisp and not too sweet, the way it’s supposed to be!

Her recipe is designed for a crowd, so now you have the perfect excuse to grab a pitcher + some glasses, and to invite friends over for a long + lazy summer evening cocktail session.

Just remember the cardinal sangria rule: it’s always stronger than you think.
