Patriotic & Potent: Salute Memorial Day The Sangria Way

In The Imbibery and Distillery by Christine McKellar

It might take a tad bit of imagination to get the red, white and blue full visual with this potent sangria, but the ingredients definitely reflect the Memorial Day theme: white wine, red watermelon and blueberries. Whatever you do, don’t forget the peach brandy. Please try to not get carried away with patriotic fervor—this punch packs a wallop!!!


***All American Sangria***

1  1.5-liter bottle Sauvignon Blanc

¾ cup peach brandy

2 cups watermelon, large dice

1 cup fresh blueberries

In a large pitcher, combine all of the ingredients. Chill for at least 24 hours before serving to allow the fruit to infuse the wine.
