Ingredients

For the sangria

  • 2 bottles dry white wine (sauvignon blanc is good)
  • 1 1/2 Cup pineapple chunks (use star-shaped cookie cutter to cut out patriotic star shapes)
  • 1/2 Cup berry-flavored vodka
  • 1 Cup raspberries
  • 1/2 Cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 Cup simple syrup
  • 1 1/2 Cup sliced and hulled strawberries
  • 1 Cup blueberries
  • 1 Cup Triple Sec

For the simple syrup

  • 1/2 Cup water
  • 1/2 Cup sugar

Directions

For the sangria

Combine all ingredients in a large punch bowl or pitcher and stir well. Cover and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Serve well-chilled with a good scoop of fruit floating in each drink, or serve over ice.

For the simple syrup

To make 1/2 cup simple syrup, boil 1/2 cup water and add 1/2 cup granulated white sugar. Turn heat to simmer and stir until dissolved. Turn off the heat and let cool.

Summer Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Summer Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
