Sweet Tea Berry Sangria recipe. An overnight iced tea turned into white wine sangria with fresh berries!

We have pretty hectic schedules at our house, as I’m sure everyone can relate. We’ve got 3 kids who all participate in extracurricular activities and have part-time jobs after school. And I just recently threw myself into the mix by going back to culinary school part time. Ouch! Weeks are honestly flying by around here. Needless to say, when we get a night with “nothing going on” we’re pretty excited. Sunday’s for us, is a time to chill, have a big dinner, squeeze in a nap and just catch up with each other.

At the end of every Sunday, I sigh and say, I wish there were two Sundays.

Sweet Tea Sangria

Now that the warm weather is here, our weekends most definitely include winding down by the pool.   And for my husband and I, the ultimate afternoon treat for us to share is a glass of Sangria.  I love how a bottle of wine and a handful of fresh fruit can be transformed into the ultimate summer cocktail.

Someone suggested to me last summer to try adding sweetened tea to the mix and I haven’t looked back since! Guys, it’s so so good.  And since I brew the tea myself the night before, I can sweeten it to my preferences (I personally don’t like mine super sweet).  Adding a bottle of sweet white wine makes this the perfect poolside drink.  And once the glass is empty, the very best part is the sweetened berry mixture in the bottom. The recipe is so versatile too, you can switch up the tea for other flavors and add other assortments of fresh fruit.
