Introduction: Rainbow Sangria

Picture of Rainbow Sangria

A fun and colorful summertime drink. Easy and fast to make and also easily customizable for different tastes. You can make it from fresh or canned fruit. This recipe makes individual servings.
What you'll need:
Pint glass jars with lids
Straws and spoons
White wine 1 bottle, I used vino verde, could also use Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, etc.
Sweet fruit juice for sweetening - white grape, pineapple or Apple recommended, or the syrup from canned fruit
At least one fruit or handful of fruit (grapes, blueberries, etc.) of each color
Red fruit
Orange fruit
Yellow fruit
Green fruit
Blue/ purple fruit

Optional: additional liquids for flavor- could use rum for a Caribbean flair, or ginger ale/ginger beer to make your sangria fizzy

Step 1: Pick Your Fruit

Make your fruit easy to eat after the drinking is all done.
You probably need about 1/4 to 1/2 cup for each color layer per jar.

Step 3: Layer Your Fruit

Start with purple/blue and then add your fruit in reverse rainbow order. Add the fruit in loosely, don't pack it in, because you want plenty of room for wine. Fill until about 1/2 inch from the top.

Step 4: Add Your Liquids

If you like sweet sangria pour in about 1/4 cup of sweet fruit juice to each of your jars. Then pour in your wine until the liquid is just to the top of the jar. It should cover all the fruit. Seal the jar and let it sit in the fridge for one hour or overnight. This will help develop the flavor of your sangria.

Step 5: Party

Serve your sangria chilled right in the jars. Just add a straw (and maybe some spoons so people can eat the fruit).
