Beat the heat with a refreshing recipe for The Best Frozen Sangria loaded with fresh fruit.
Today my little boy turns 2 years old. But before you start scrolling in anticipation of a sappy “someone stop time” post, allow me to direct your focus: alcohol slushies. I repeat, ALCOHOL SLUSHIES.
Do I have your attention now?
Yes indeed, today is Julian’s big second birthday. It’s hard to believe that two years ago today, I was pumped with Pitocin, stabbed in my spine with a foot-long needle (I see you, epidural) and popped out an 8-pound boy. If that doesn’t deserve a cocktail, then I don’t know what does.
So here we are, celebrating my sweet boy’s second year and toasting to all the amazing chaos that life with two little boys ages 2 and under entails.
Wine. It entails a lot of wine.
And the only thing better than wine, is wine with more alcohol. So I’ve taken a classic sangria recipe from my days living in Spain (should we recount Salmonella-gate?) and given it a frosty edge. But the real hero of this story is that blender jug up above. To recap:
- More alcohol
- Blender jug
You see where I’m going with this, right? Forget the glasses. Skip the straws. Find your nearest garden hose and HAVE. AT. IT.

Awesome! I hope you enjoy the recipe, Michelle!
Will this keep well in the freezer or become
Hi Janet! I’ve never tried freezing the sangria but I think it could work. Would love to hear your results if you give it a shot!
My husband and I love this sangria in the summertime! Came back to the site to print off the recipe again, whipping up a batch tomorrow for our little party. :)
I’m so thrilled you enjoyed the recipe, Rose!
I made this today, delicious but very watery! I forgot the honey is that why it is watery?
Hi Judy – It’s hard to say what could have caused your frozen sangria to be watery. Did you use frozen fruit, and did you follow the proportions as listed?
Can you use another fruit besides strawberries? I don’t like strawberries
Absolutely, Jeanette! Any frozen fruit works!
