Star Spangled Sangria


Star Spangled Sangria

What’s better than sangria? Star spangled sangria! Our Fourth of July spin on this crowd-pleaser mixes Hard Truth Cinnamon Vodka with dry riesling, fresh-squeezed orange juice, and red, white, and blue fruits for a fun, seasonal sangria. This one’s great for a party — you can make it ahead of time and each batch offers 4-6 servings.


1½ c. Hard Truth Cinnamon Vodka
1 bottle (750 mL) Dry riesling
Juice of one orange
10 Strawberries, topped and separated
½ c. Blueberries, separated
1 Apple, slices (or, if you’re feeling thematic, cut into stars with a tiny star cookie-cutter)


  1. Muddle four strawberries and 2 Tbs. blueberries in bottom of a large glass pitcher.
  2. Slice remaining strawberries, then add to pitcher with apple slices and remaining blueberries.
  3. Squeeze or pour fresh orange juice into pitcher, then add Hard Truth Cinnamon Vodka and wine, and stir gently.
  4. Cover, and let rest in refrigerator for at least one hour before serving over ice in mason jar glasses.
