Spice up your Summer with Skinny Summertime Sangria

by Cascade Ice on June 11, 2020

Nothing says “Let’s welcome summertime” better than a refreshing sangria! This recipe will have your taste buds dancing, but won’t sabotage your healthy living goals. 

Our Skinny Summertime Sangria recipe is made with fruit and wine (like most sangrias), but offers less sugar and fewer calories! While a regular or pre-made sangria can contain almost 300 calories for an 8 ounce glass, this recipe can shave off as much as half the calories, so you can sip with confidence! 


1/4 cup frozen fruit (reach for ones high in antioxidants like strawberries, blueberries and raspberries) 

4 ounces red wine

1/2 ounce lemon juice

1/2 ounce orange juice

6 ounces Cascade Ice Sparkling Water in Wild Berry 

Fresh strawberry slice for garnish (if desired)


Place frozen berries at the bottom of your desired glass, and add orange and lemon juices. Muddle the berries, and add wine. Fill up the glass with ice, and top with Cascade Ice. Garnish, sip, and take in the sights and sounds of summertime!
