Sparkling Sweet Tea Sangria is a refreshing summer cocktail that’s perfect for sipping on the patio, poolside or at a picnic. It’s easily made with sweet tea, sparkling wine, orange liqueur and fresh berries. The star-spangled fruit kabobs give each glass a fun and festive touch!
Sweet Tea Sangria:
- 1 cup raspberries
- 1 cup pineapple chunks
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup orange liqueur (triple sec, cointreau or grand marnier)
- 4 cups Red Diamond Sweet Tea
- 1 (750 ml) bottle sparkling wine (prosecco or champagne)
Star-Spangled Fruit Kabobs:
- thick pineapple slices, cut into small stars
Place the raspberries, pineapple chunks, and blueberries in the bottom of a large pitcher. Add the orange liqueur, sweet tea and the bottle of sparkling wine. Gently stir it all together and let it set in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours before serving. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor of the drink.
While the sweet tea sangria is refrigerating, make the star-spangled fruit kabobs to garnish each glass with. Start by cutting star shapes out of thick pineapple slices with a small star-shaped cookie cutter. On a 6-inch bamboo skewer, alternate blueberries and raspberries and then add a pineapple star to the top of each one.
To serve the Sparkling Sweet Tea Sangria, fill each glass with some ice and a star-spangled fruit kabob. Pour the cold sweet tea sangria into each glass and enjoy!
