It's summer, which means berries and cherries are in season right now at your local farmers market. Grab a couple pints, then mix up a pitcher of this sangria. It's light, refreshing, and perfect for patio parties. What more could you want?

Traditionally sangria is a bit heavier, with red wine and brandy, but this version calls for white wine and limoncello instead. The Sauvignon Blanc is crisp and fruity, while the limoncello offers a tart, sweet note. Raspberry lemonade and Sprite keep the sangria from being too boozy, while mint, cherries, raspberries, and blackberries add a pop of freshness that tastes of the season.

Not only does this sangria taste delicious, but it also looks so beautiful and festive. The fact that you can make a batch ahead of time, let the flavors meld and strengthen, and then effortlessly serve it when friends drop by makes it a true summer hero. Just set out glasses filled with ice and you're all set. Cheers!
