Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria

A boozy wine punch is an excellent way to entertain casually in the Summertime. Sangria makes any small gathering of friends feel like a party. This one is the perfect combination of sweet and tart. I am loving lemons right now – they are so refreshing, simple, and clean. The rhubarb tints it a pretty pink and the ginger adds a little something extra. Your guests will never know what hit them!

Strawberry Rhubarb Sangria


  • 1 bottle crisp white wine
  • 1 cup white rum
  • 2 cups lemonade
  • 6 strawberries, hulled and sliced
  • 2 rhubarb stalks, chopped
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rounds
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 cup sparkling water


Combine all ingredients except the sparkling water in a large pitcher or jar and let it marinate all day or overnight in the refrigerator. Splash the seltzer into each glass when serving, and remember to include some of the fruit in every serving!
