I love picnics.  I love being outside and spending time with family and friends.  I love spending a leisurely Sunday, visiting, playing badminton or croquet, snacking, grilling and perhaps having a glass of wine.....Ahhhhhh.....wine.

I think that the perfect wine for a casual picnic pot luck, where you aren't sure what food will be offered and what the other guests wine preferences might be, is a fruity, refreshing Sangria Punch. This recipe I'm sharing with you today is sure to please everyone at the table with it's light and sparkly goodness.



Now, one of the problems of trying to keep wine chilled at a picnic is the danger of watering down your wine if you add ice to it.  Want to know an easy way to rectify that problem??  Ice cubes made from wine....melt away ice....melt away....and in keeping with the fruity theme you can put a cherry inside each cube

Sangria Punch

1 bottle red wine
2 cans lemon lime soda
1 orange, cut into slices
1 lime, cut into slices
1 lemon, cut into slices

Pour wine and soda into a large pitcher.  Add fruit slices and stir to combine.  Serve chilled. If desired make ice cubes using some of the punch to add to the wine on hot days to keep it cool.  Print Recipe

Let's see what everyone else brought to the picnic

  1. Sangria is very refreshing indeed, Wendy! I don't think I'd have time for it to get warm because it would be gone in a hurry.

  6. Sangria is great for a picnic. What kind of red wine do you recommend using?

    1. I used a cabernet for this because that was what I had in the house. I like to use a dry red so that it cuts the sweetness of the soda. Some like to use a rose but I find that is too sweet for my taste.
