Full Answer

Although sangria is usually made with red wine, pink moscato can be a great substitute for an easy, refreshing summer drink. Recommended fruits to use include raspberries, grapefruit, blueberries, oranges, lemons and limes. For a more tropical flavor, use mangoes, pineapple and kiwi. Peel, seed and thinly slice all of the fruits (other than the berries) before adding them.

For a fuller flavor, replace the sugar with 1 or 2 cups of juice, such as pineapple nectar or peach mango juice. Some like to add a carbonated beverage, such as lemon-lime flavored soda, but carbonation changes overnight. To increase the alcohol content, add more triple sec or 1/2 cup of brandy or peach schnapps.

To make your own simple syrup, boil 1/2 cup of water over high heat, add 1/2 cup of sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves. Remove it from the heat, let the syrup cool and add it to your moscato sangria.
