This is a beautiful treat for any mom to enjoy this Mother’s Day. It’s a Pink Berry Sangria, made with strawberries and raspberries. It has a kick to it but you will never know because it tastes like candy!!
Perfect way to add to Mother’s Day pampering would be to make this delicious sangria for any mom in your life and keep it filled all day! This is a perfect drink that will give you that sweet and boozy satisfaction but it tastes like candy.
A cocktail that tastes like a luscious berry candy…that’s the dream!
I was just messing around in the kitchen last week and I had extra berries to get rid of before we leave for our vacation. So I thought, “hey, why not make a pitcher of sangria?” No one can say “no” to that! I got a bottle of wine and whipped up this perfect little cocktail!
It also happened to be the day that my mom was coming over to babysit our little man while we went out on a date night. My mom is a sucker for sangrias, so the timing couldn’t be any more perfect. Last year, I made a Grapefruit Sangria for her, for Mother’s Day, and she loved it! This one was amazing as well. Mom even mentioned that she couldn’t even taste the alcohol here, it was just juicy and berrylicious!
This cocktail gets the stamp of approval from me and my mom. I hope you make it for yourself or a special mother in your life!

My mom isn’t the biggest drinker, but I know she would love one or two of these. So would we, especially on a blistering hot day like today in OC. Great pictures and glad I found this recipe. Have a great weekend!
