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!

    That picture of the the pitcher, filled with fruit….amazing! This could possibly be THE perfect drink for summer. So easy too. Have an awesome weekend!

      Thank you, Matt! Absolutely agree that this would be perfect for summer time! You have a great weekend as well!

    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.

    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!!!

      Haha that’s funny. I can totally imagine how delicious it was! Oh those fresh blackberries sounds even better!

    I love Moscato and this looks and sounds delicious.

      Yes, perfect summer drink! Thanks, Susan!

    Can you make it without triple sec?

    • Shinee — April 23, 2015 @ 9:29 am (#)

      You sure can. But in my opinion, it lacks something without it.

  8. Jay — June 18, 2015 @ 9:14 am (#)

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

    • Shinee — June 19, 2015 @ 8:35 am (#)

      Jay, I’m not really sure what would be a good sub for wine in this recipe. Sorry.

    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!

    • Shinee — July 5, 2015 @ 10:38 am (#)

      Ryan, adding blood orange sparkling OJ sounds amazing! I’m so trying that next time! Thank you so much for sharing you feedback. Cheers!

  10. Jasmine — August 2, 2015 @ 1:28 am (#)

    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 :)

    • Shinee — August 2, 2015 @ 11:52 am (#)

      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! :)

  11. Nikki — August 3, 2015 @ 10:36 pm (#)

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

    • Shinee — August 4, 2015 @ 12:00 pm (#)

      That’d be nice of him to make it for you. It’s one delicious drink to enjoy for sure. Thanks, Nikki!

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

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

      Exactly! Thanks, Rae!

  14. Jade Ceja — August 7, 2015 @ 7:32 am (#)

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

    • Shinee — August 9, 2015 @ 9:44 am (#)

      I’m sure you can, Jade. I never tried it though. Hope you enjoy!
