RECIPE

Star Spangled Sangria

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

Red, white and blue trifles are so 1776. Celebrate the Fourth of July like a real patriot with this Star Spangled Sangria, made with raspberries, blackberries and pineapple slices cut into stars. This sweet and tart white wine Sangria gets its edge from dark pineapple rum and berry liqueur instead of the classic brandy, while the pineapple stars keep it fun and festive. Serve it at your Independence Day barbecue alongside cheeseburgers, macaroni salad and … fine, some of that delicious berry trifle.
