How to Make Sparkling Sangria

We used 7UP to add some bubbles and a bit of sweetness to our sangria, and it was the perfect bubbly base combined with a simple pinot grigio.

Creating a sparkling sangria adds some texture and interest to the cocktail, while making it feel extra light and refreshing.

Tropical Fruits to Try with Sangria

The tropical fruit adds a fun touch, especially the dragonfruit! I have to admit, it’s so pretty.

And aside from being lovely to look at, dragon fruit has a nice mild flavor that really soaks up the sangria.

Other tropical fruits to try are mango, passionfruit, guava, pineapple, or papaya.

When adding fruit to your tropical sangria, I recommend ensuring that the fruit is somewhat firm and not too soft so that it doesn’t fall apart in the drink.

Crack open a coconut to serve as a vase for some floral arrangements. It works like a charm!

Cut colorful flowers or tropical foliage to a short stem and insert them into the coconut half. You can place these around as table centerpieces, as place cards at a dinner, or on a drinks or dessert table at a party.

  1. Thank you so much for your intesting and fun emails and blogs! I work in a crazy busy environment and I so enjoy taking the minutes off to read your email and then pop on to your website to further explore. One question… What on earth is that pretty fruit you have there ,with the pink rind and white inner and the black pips? I have never seen that in my life and we certainly do not get that here in Cape Town, SA. Very pretty and I assume it tastes good too!
