Let me just start by saying, I love the 4th of July.

{Who doesn't love Merica', sparklers, and sangria?!}

There are so many recipe variations out there when it comes to sangria. Really, there’s no strict rules – which is part of why sangria is so great (which is why it’s so yummy of course). Today’s HD recipe, Cardinal Sangria Cocktail, is one of those super simple crowd pleasers that takes less than ten minutes to make, but will keep folks coming back for more!

This Cardinal Sangria recipe is great for a summer BBQ or even tailgating before a St. Louis Cardinal’s game :), but it’s also a great recipe for wedding showers, baby showers, and bachelorette parties. Really, anytime you need a simple, yet beautiful, drink that will serve lots of people, sangria is a great choice.

All you need is:
¼ cup sugar
¼ cup water
1 bottle dry red table wine
½ cup brandy
1 cup pomegranate juice
1 whole apple, sliced
1 whole orange, sliced
1 cup strawberries, sliced
½ cup blueberries

First, combine your sugar and water in a saucepan. Over medium high heat bring mixture to a boil. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool.

Add red wine, brandy, pomegranate juice, apples, oranges, and strawberries to a large pitcher.

Next, add in cooled simple syrup and stir. (Optional: Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving) Garnish with lemon slices and you are all set!

I will be wearing this adorable Sail to Sable top for the 4th along with wet lake hair and a sunburn :)

What do you and your family do for the 4th?? I'd love some ideas!
