Strawberry Lemonade Sangria with Basil and Cherries

Classic Sangria is good, but this Strawberry Lemonade Sangria is better. Made with fresh basil, Pinot Noir, spiced rum, strawberry lemonade, and mixed fruits like strawberries and cherries, this summer Sangria is guaranteed to be one you make over and over again.
For best results, mix the rum, wine, and strawberry lemonade together in a large pitcher with the fresh chopped fruit and allow mixture to rest in the refrigerator for 30 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1.5 cups strawberries thinly sliced
  • 1.5 cups fresh cherries stems removed, pitted and halved
  • 1 peach pitted and sliced
  • .5 orange sliced and cut into quarters
  • 1 lemon thinly sliced
  • 1 cup spiced rum
  • 1 cup strawberry lemonade
  • 1 bottle Red Wine
  • non-sweetened lime-flavored carbonated water or regular carbonated water
  • Ice
  • Fresh Basil to garnish

Instructions

  • Add the strawberries, cherries, peach, orange, and lemon slices to a large pitcher. Add the rum and strawberry lemonade and gently muddle to extract the flavors of the fruit into the juice and alcohol.

  • When ready to serve, fill a glass with ice and fill three-fourths of the way full with sangria. Top off each glass with bubbly water or lemon-lime soda. Garnish with fresh basil, if desired.
