This summer cocktail is slightly sweet, a little tart and very refreshing.

I learned about it at my favorite restaurant in Salado, Texas ~ Adelea’s on Main. While searching for some old doors to upcycle, I came across this quaint home turned restaurant.

Raspberry Sangria from ZestuousThe waitress behind the bar was mixing up a cocktail with champagne, pinot grigio and frozen berries, and she immediately caught my attention.

Raspberry Sangria from ZestuousI sat at a table outside on the patio and asked the waitress what went into this sangria. She told me the ingredients, I ordered a glass, and after a wonderful lunch of pimento cheese quiche and a crisp salad with sugared pecans and poppy seed dressing, my next stop was the liquor store.

I made a pitcher for our outdoor Easter celebration, and it was a hit. I don’t measure when I make this, so it was fun to turn it into a usable recipe for you.

One of the best things about this cocktail is that it uses frozen berries, so your drink gets cold, but never waters down. Drink it with caution though; it’ll knock you off your feet in no time.
