Sangria is one of my favorite summer drinks — it’s fruity and colorful and perfect for a party since you can mix up a huge batch the night before, then chill it and forget it while the fruit infuses it and makes it even more delicious while it sits. So, since pool parties are around the corner, Chanel and I decided to challenge each other to a Sangria face-off and see who gets the award for official drink of summer. Watch the video above to see who wins, then keep scrolling for the recipes!

In my version (recipe below), I traded in red wine for rosé which is my other favorite drink of summer (obvi), and replaced the traditional brandy with Saint Germaine, which is an elderflower liquor that also has the prettiest bottle ever.

Chanel made a pretty groovy version, too. Click here to get the recipe for her Citrus Mint Sangria.

I’d love to hear your favorite summer party drinks in the comments!

    I love to make sangria with Sauvignon Blanc, peach schnapps , frozen mangos and white peaches, blueberries, topped with sparkling lemon water and garnish with mint. Your recipe looks amazing!

    This looks so yummy… I’ve been making some fun mixers this summer, but hadn’t yet done sangria, but now I’m inspired. Also, any idea where I the gorgeous glass with the peach and basil in it is from?
