Sangria isn’t just for summer. We are hanging onto those warm temperatures and celebrating with this refreshing Sangria Lemonade recipe.
It’s hard to believe the end of summer is near but I am still holding on to those warm fall days with this refreshing Sangria Lemonade. It’s made with just a handful of ingredients making it a no-brainer addition to your next bbq, book club or happy hour menu.
We realized that we didn’t have many rum cocktail recipes on the site and knew that needed to change. Kevin and I aren’t really rum and coke people. Instead, we prefer our rum in one of these daiquiris or these mojitos. But when I was taste testing recipes for this sangria, I knew that lemon flavored rum was just what this sangria recipe needed to make it complete. Regular rum would work too, but I love the depth the Bacardi Limon adds.
Did I mention sangria is perfect for tailgating, too? While I love a good beer every once in awhile, this sangria lemonade is much more my speed when it comes to tailgating. Plus I love that I can make it ahead of time and don’t have to worry about keeping a bunch of separate bottles cold. Just pack some cups and ice, pour the sangria in a pitcher, and I’m good to go.
This sangria lemonade is the perfect way to celebrate summer slipping into fall. Just pour, stir and refrigerate for an hour to let the flavors develop and your cocktails are set. That’s my kind of entertaining. Tasty, easy and no fuss.
