I love a fruity drink. Not only is this one full of fruit flavor, it tastes like dessert! It is a little sweeter and boozier than you typical sangria.

Sangria can be made with lots of different fruits and combinations of fruits. Strawberries are absolutely perfect for sangria.

I used a bottle of moscato wine but you could use rose or even a white wine. The cake-flavored vodka and strawberry simple syrup add some sweetness to this sangria.

Strawberry Shortcake Sangria Recipe Tips:

  • If the sangria is too sweet or strong or you just want a few bubbles, add some club soda.
  • Be sure all your ingredients are chilled. You want your sangria to be cold and refreshing.
  • You can use either cake-flavored vodka or whipped cream-flavored vodka. They have similar flavors.
  • The strawberry syrup can be made a day or two ahead of time and refrigerated.
  • Be sure to save a few whole strawberries to garnish with. I also like lime slices and mint for garnish.
