The following post, photos, and recipe for Mango Raspberry Sangria is a guest post from my friend Katie of Epicurean Mom. Step right up and enjoy her beautiful photography and recipe. Welcome, Katie!

I’m extremely thrilled to be posting for Katie! Today, I’m sharing one of my favorite and simple drinks that highlights how tasty summer really is! There’s nothing better then sipping on a nice cold cocktail on a hot summer day.

When entertaining, it’s easy to overextend yourself and make the foods fresh the day of. I’m one of those people. Detailing the party until the time the guests arrive, which leaves me still in my p.j’s and scrambling to get myself decent.

That’s the beauty of Sangria. No bartender needed for this drink recipe, no shaking of the cocktail shakers; just toss and mix the ingredients the night before.

This recipe combines all the cheery and colorful tastes of summer into one beautiful drink. I combined a sweeter rose wine with fresh mango and raspberries; it’s fresh, crisp and refreshing.

It’s well worth using the fresh ingredients rather then frozen, although frozen fruits would work just fine too.

Another very popular sangria recipe I created is a fall cocktail, blood orange sangria. It’s a bit heavier since it uses a cabernet. I would recommend bookmarking this recipe for the fall or for a breezy summer night party!

Thank you so much Katie for letting me have your blog for the day!

    Found this on Pinterest and loved it! I could not find Izze’s sparkling raspberry juice, so I used the blackberry. Yum!
