Use frozen raspberries to keep this cold lemonade sangria. Perfect for Mother's Day or summer BBQ

I have been making this recipe for years now and finally got around to taking photos of it. Usually I make it right before a party and am dashing around like my head has been cut off with all the last minute details. This time I was smart. I made it the day before. It only took me a year to think of that idea! Yup, smart. Any hoo, I am so glad I can finally share it with you. I was about to write that I remember the first time I had sangria. How often do I say that? Probably too often, but alas, I do not remember. What? I don’t know how that happened. I remember loving sangria at The Columbia restaurant in Florida. Was that the first? I don’t remember. My memory is failing me.

I guess it doesn’t matter. I have loved sangria for years. This one is a party favorite. You may need to double or triple the recipe. I made it for our Christmas party and had to remake it three times, and we still ran out. I keep the fruit simple with just frozen raspberries and lemon slices. A great tip is putting frozen raspberries into the sangria. They will help keep it cold, plus add more delicious raspberry flavor. I don’t bother squeezing a bunch of lemons to make lemonade.

I use a raspberry lemonade concentrate. Sacrilege maybe, but look a party is a lot of work. I need some timesavers to get everything done. Plus, the concentrate is delicious. I would have to buy a ton of expensive lemons to make a lemonade concentrate. Have you seen the price of lemons lately? Outrageous. I am counting on our lemon tree to supply my lemon love very soon.

  1. You are definitely speaking my language here! I love sangria in the summer (fall, winter, spring) and this looks so good! Pinned and yummed!
  2. That looks so refreshing! I bet it would be good with rum too.

      Hi Dannii, It probably would be good with rum. I did one with champagne that was delicious too.
  3. Light. Refreshing. Perfect reminder that summer is right around the corner.
  4. What a lovely looking cocktail! Summer and citrus just seem to go together... I can imagine this when our family meets in the Texas Hill Country on the patio of our vacation rental in June. Pinning!

      Hi Heather, This is my favorite sangria. I've been making it for a couple of years now and is always a crowd favorite.
  7. Love a great Sangria and since it's supposed to be 90 degrees here tomorrow,....cheers! :D
  8. This sangria looks so refreshing and would be perfect for this summer!
  9. I don't drink but this looks super good. Do you have a non-alcoholic version?
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      Hi Sam, Actually I do. Whenever I make something like this I make a nonalcoholic version for my daughter. Simply substitute the wine for plain seltzer water.
  10. I've eaten at The Columbia too! I am from Florida! I didn't have sangria there because I was too young, but my mom loved it! I make sangria all the time as a way to eat my fruit:) Thanks for the idea of mixing it with lemonade!
    • Christie Daruwalla says

  11. hmm.. I think you are ready for early summer with your raspberry-lemonade sangria Christie :)
  12. Just gorgeous! I'm dreaming of an outdoor cocktail party w the girls now!
    • Christie Daruwalla says
      I started making this as a cocktail for Ladies night and adapted it to Sangria. Now everyone asks for it no matter what time of year.
  13. This looks absolutely delicious! What a delicious twist on regular sangria!
  14. Oh yum! I just love a good sangria! :) And this one looks PERFECT for summer barbecues.
