Summer is all about parties, cook outs, relaxing time out in the backyard – all with a refreshing drink to help you beat the heat. Add some fresh fruits that are in season and you’ve got summer in a glass!
This summer berry sangria that is also a red,white and blur sangria, just in time for the Independence day celebrations, is not only pretty but also super tasty, sweet and refreshing all at the same time! You could use any other fruit for the white but I just sliced up the strawberries and used the insides as the white component. I also cut them up into little stars with these mini star cutters!

And don’t you love that cute berry basket?! I wash and pat dry the berries and store them in the refrigerator in these baskets. That way the kiddo can help himself to them, anytime he wants berries for a snack.
