Berry Mint Champagne Sangria

Whats the best way to celebrate the end of summer?  With a thirst-quenching glass of sangria, natch!!  This is my favorite sangria recipe that I always serve it when I'm entertaining guests.  Its super easy to put together + much tamer than most sangria's which usually call for hard alcohol.  I serve mine with Italian prosecco and a seriously refreshing homemade mint simple syrup.  So what are you waiting for?  Whip this up this weekend, kick back & cheers to the end of summer :)


1 bottle of Prosecco
3/4 c. orange juice
1 lemon, zested and thinly sliced
1 lime, zested and thinly sliced
1/2 c. sliced strawberries
3/4 c. blackberries
1 c. packed mint leaves + extra for garnish
1 1/2 c. filtered water
1 1/2 c. sugar {or sugar substitute, I used Z sweet}


In a small saucepan, combine sugar, water, and mint leaves.  Bring to a boil & allow to simmer for about 10 minutes; stirring occasionally.  Remove from heat, and allow to cool for 15 minutes.  Strain mint leaves out, and set simple syrup aside.

Meanwhile in a large pitcher, combine orange juice, prosecco, and lemon & lime zests.  Add berries, sliced lemon & limes and stir to incorporate.  Lastly, add the simple syrup and give it one last good stir.

Fill glasses with ice cubes and pour sangria immediately.  Garnish with fresh mint leaves and enjoy!
