Last Sunday on Mother’s day, I made this fruity Moscato Sangria for my mother-in-law. She sure enjoyed the drink and boozy fruits! How can you say “NO” to this fun and colorful drink anyway?

This sangria is super simple. I basically threw in all the fruits I had on hand. A little bit of orange, grapefruit, raspberries and blueberries. Mix in some triple sec, simple syrup and fill the pitcher with rose Moscato. Strawberries would have been great addition as well.

As much as I enjoy fresh fruits, I’m a huge sucker for boozy fruits too. Champaign soaked raspberries, strawberries, watermelon, they are all great!

  4. This does look good.  I usually make mine with Pinot Grigio and added grenadine for sweetness, but once I tasted the sweetness of Moscato and Reisling, I think I could easily make it with one of these without adding sugar or simple syrup.  I usually puree a bunch of fruit and berries in my food processor and then add it to a pitcher of a few bottles of wine and let it ferment for 2 days.  Then on the day I’m going to serve it, I strain the wine into another pitcher, then I add a bunch of cut fruit and berries. The two days fermenting helps it take on so many other flavors!  And then the day of the fruit and berries become boozy as well.  I sometimes freeze grapes to use as ice cubes.

    • Wil, thanks so much for sharing your method. I’m going to try that next time. Fermenting for 2days sounds absolutely delicious. And yes, I also like to use Pinot Grigio for sangrias. But this particular one is made with Moscato, and of course, you can adjust the sugar amount to your taste. When I was making this recipe, I felt it did need some sweetness added.

  5. I think you’ll love it after fermenting it for two days.  At my last big summer BBQ, an out of state friend liked it so much, she offered to pay me to put the pitcher in a less conspicuous location so people wouldn’t drink it all right away.  So now I make a few pitchers because they go quickly.  And as you know, most people don’t realize how potent they are!!!  Also, living in Maine, in summer I get blue berries from a friend’s farm so they’re ultra fresh!  I’m betting Moscato and Prosecco will make a mean Sangria!!!

  7. I love Moscato and this looks and sounds delicious.

  8. Can I just tell you how much I love this?!!! It looks amazing! Pinning! 

  9. What a perfect drink for warm summer evening! Absolutely love it!

  10. Can you make it without triple sec?

  11. Is there a mocktail version of this. I know I can use alcohol removed wine. What else?

  12. I made this yesterday morning and let it rest in the fridge all day for our evening cookout, and it was a hit! I couldn’t find a bottle of rose Moscato, so I used a bottle of rose and a bottle of moscato and blended (made a double batch). Also used Grand Mariner instead of triple sec. Skipped out on the grapefruit (at my wife’s request) and went with blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and navel oranges. I added a can of San Pellegrino Blood Orange sparkling OJ and cut the sugar to 1/2 cup, which added some additional fruit flavor, as well as some slight fizziness. This was the perfect summer drink, and definitely stole the show from my chicken tacos and guac!

  13. Turned out amazing! However, Be sure to only put half of the suger water in the mix if you aren’t fond of very sweet drinks. Over all, scrumptious recipe and great for a girls night 🙂

    • Yay, so glad you loved the sangria, Jasmine. And you’re right, the simple syrup amount should be adjusted to everyone’s liking. Thanks for sharing your feedback. Cheers! 🙂

  14. This looks absolutely delicious. Going to drop a hint to hubby to make this for date night at home! 

  15. I love a light sangria and this looks perfect. Fantastic collection of fruits. Yum!

  16. I’d imagine this to be perfect on a hot afternoon. Pinned it for later!

  17. I’m making this in bulk(x10). Could I add ginger ale for some extra volume? 

  18. yummy! thanks for sharing 🙂 pinned it!

    stop by and chat

  19. I could so go for one of these now Shinee! Thanks for sharing at the Say G’day Party! Pinned all and look forward to seeing you on Saturday!

  20. I made this for Easter; my first try at any sangria.  And to start – it looked beautiful in the pitcher and was a big wow factor. We were halfway through the pitcher when my friend (who usually only drinks red sangria) got a concerned look on his face and asked if I needed him to go get another bottle of moscato to make more! So he and my husband ran out and came back with the 1.5 liter sized bottle!!  Even though the 2nd and 3rd batches didn’t have time to “stew” for a few hours, it was still a huge hit and we cleaned it all off!  I liked how the grapefruit cut back on the sweetness (I used half the grapefruit so it wouldn’t dominate and about half the simple syrup.) Definitely a fan!  Thanks!
