Foodie Friday-Fourth of July Sangria

DSC_1532

Fireworks, BBQs, and drinks with friends and family are our favorite ways to celebrate independence! It is hot out there and the best way to cool off is with a refreshing holiday inspired sangria. Ginger Beer has been very popular this year in Moscow Mules but why not find more uses for it? For my sangria, I used Pinot Grigio but of you prefer sweeter wines then I suggest a Moscato or Reisling. I noticed the Simply Juices were on sale and was inspired to use the Simply Blueberry Lemonade. For each glasss, fill with ice and fill halfway with wine and top it off with equal parts of the blueberry lemonade and ginger beer. I could not find any starfruit so I got crafty and cut out a star using honeydew melon. I garnished the cocktail with the melon, raspberry and a blueberry. So easy and refreshing!
