blueberry rosemary citrus sangria recipeA few summer’s ago, one of my dear friends, Erin, brought Rosemary Blueberry Sangria to a summer barbeque. Ever since then, every time I want to make sangria, I think about Erin’s drink of fabulousness. Last weekend, I was in charge of red wine sangria for a baby shower and got ahold of the Blueberry Rosemary Sangria recipe.

    1. Oh Pennsylvania and your weather- totally feel your pain, friend. I won’t tell you what the temp is here. 😉

  1. hello! randomly came across your recipe and I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO MAKING IT! just wanted to check … you need 2 bottles of wine – is that correct? 1 for the boiling part and then one to dilute it at the end?
    Thanks!

    1. Nope, just boil with water and then add wine at the end. And seriously, SO GOOD. 🙂 Just seeing your comment makes me think I should make this again. 🙂

      1. Ah ok because your first step says
        “Then add one bottle (750 ml or about 3 cups) of red wine and some blueberries and lemons floating in the mixture.”
        Am going to make it now! 🙂
