Thirsty Thursday: Calleigh's Sangria

I want to introduce y'all to one of my favorite people in the world - my friend and sorority sister Calleigh.  Calleigh is one of the most intelligent, most hilarious, and most beautiful women I've ever met in my life.  And bonus points - she makes a mean sangria.  When we went to the beach, Calleigh made the yummiest sangria I've ever had.  She was kind enough to let me share her personal recipe in case any of y'all are looking for something delicious and surprisingly simple for "Thirsty Thursday!"

What you'll need:

Step One:  Fill your adorable tumblers with ice.  (We brought our supplies to the beach, and we actually used ice in the tumblers as a way to keep our berries and Sprite cold!)

Step Two:  Pour the entire bag of frozen berries into the pitcher.

Step Three:  Pour your entire bottle of wine into the pitcher.

Step Four:  Pour half of a bottle of blackberry brandy into the pitcher.

Step Five:  Pour the entire 2-liter of Sprite into the pitcher.

Step Six:  Shake, shake, shake, then pour, pour, pour!


Happy Thirsty Thursday to those of y'all 21+!  (If not, just hang on to this until then... I promise, it's worth it!)  And a big thank you to Calleigh for allowing me to share this recipe!

On a side note, if you're of age and you're ever in Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, Tennessee, you've got to stop by Bootlegger's!  The atmosphere is fun, and the wine is good.  (My aunt buys me a few bottles for every holiday!)



Not a sponsored post :)  I just really love Bootleggers + sangria!


  1. Those tumblers are absolutely adorable- and I know a bunch of people who would love this recipe! :)

  2. Wow! This is probably the most simple, and delicious sangria recipe I've come across. I'm glad I pinned it! Also- my boyfriend and I are making plans to visit Pigeon Forge in October so I'll have to check Bootleggers out! Thanks for the tip. ;)

  3. This sounds exactly like my moscato sangria! I love using sprite in white wine sangrias, but I've never tried it with red wine!
    Y'all's tumblers are super cute! Happy Wine-ing!


  4. This sangria sounds yummy. That's all I have been making this summer for the most part. I should try making this one before the summer ends.


  5. Oh my -- I need to try this!
    I have never really cared for sangria but this one sounds like one I can be down with.
    So glad Calleigh let you share her recipe.
