So the Stone Fruit and Strawberry Sangria was born. And it’s making quite a few appearances on the dinner table this coming week. It literally cannot be easier. It just requires a few minutes to pit the cherries and then another second or two to combine the sugar and the brandy. And then it’s ready to drink!! Well…. almost ready to drink! It’s got to sit in the fridge for a few hours so the fruit can really infuse the wine and make the Stone Fruit and Strawberry Sangria picture perfect.

So here’s to cherry and strawberry season! Run on over to the store or farmers market and grab a few bags. Use some for this sangria, obviously, and then just eat the rest right out of the bag. They will literally rock your world.

Also. Full disclaimer. This is basically the best sangria I’ve ever created. Hands down. Best stuff on earth. So while I’m sure you could probably drink the whole thing yourself, it’s best served for at least 2 people. Probably three 🙂

  1. Cherry tasting would be so much fun! I remember trying out to many at Pike Place Market in Seattle. Glad you enjoyed your adventure and I’m up for a cherry sangria anytime!

    1. Hi Betsy! I’ve never tried it without alcohol but I bet it would be great with grape juice, apple juice, etc!!

  2. Always looking for ways to use the delicious fruits of summer. This will be perfect for the upcoming season!

  3. Any recommendations for a brandy substitute? I have triple sec, but was worried that it would be a strange flavor combination. Am I better just leaving it out?

  4. I don’t usually go for White Sangria, but this looks stellar! And I have some great Sav Blancs I can use! Thanks for sharing.
